Disassociate a table after importing data

Hi there,

i have a dashboard that reads 9 different excel spreadsheets and what i need is to disassociate (in italian version: "sconnetti logicamente" - logically disconnect) a straight table, in order that the values inside this table do not change during the data analysis.

I need this because they represent the % Effort of each team on all the services offered to customer.

Here is a screenshot also:

Is it possible to insert a code inside the Script to let this table to get "disassociated"/"disconnected logically" just after the ending of data loading?

Detach the table  by checking the Detached option on the General tab of the properties screen. This can not be done from the load script, but you could set a variable in the load script and have a macro run on the OnPostReload trigger to set the Detached value. Something like:

sub DetachMyChart

     set v = ActiveDocument.Variables("vDetachCH01")

     if v.GetContent.String = 1 then ActiveDocument.GetSheetObject("CH01").Detach

end sub

Re: Disassociate a table after importing data


I respectfully disagree with your approach. While it would definitely work, this is not an elegant way to approach the problem. A much better approach would use set analysis in the chart expressions--either the {1} set or creating a new alternate state group under Document Properties.
