    NPrinting Report Conditions

    Jay Fitchett

      Hey folks,

      I have a question about conditions and how they work. What I want to happen:

      In a publish task, I have one report and several users that have filters applied to them (there are no filters applied to the report or task). I only want to send the report to those users who meet a condition based on a variable being greater than a constant. I want to compare the value of the variable after its been filtered for each user.

       

      It seems to me that when I attach a condition to a report, the condition is evaluated before filtering for each user occurs (the whole dataset). Is there any built in functionality that achieves what I want? I feel like it's not a crazy edge case and that I'm just missing something.

       

      Thanks! I'm using Sense and NPrinting 17.3

          In NPrinting 16, you have an option to add condition.Capture.PNG

            I've made no progress after a bit more digging/testing. Anyone have any tips?

              Hi,

               

              Maybe i am drifting away from topic but I think there can be a workaround to what you are trying to achieve.

              1 I would try to apply Calculation condition on all your qlikview objects (the condition would be variable being greater than a constant)


              This way you will not have any charts calculated and i think then NPrinting report will not be sent.

               

              What version of NPriniting are we talking about? 16 or 17.

               

              2. If it is version 16 then i would suggest trying to apply recipient viariable filter where your recipient variable would calculate for each user 1 or 0 and using <verify> tag on filter would let (or would not let) the report to distribute to user.

               

              Unfortunately i do not have NPrinting 16 to test it. Second option may not be right as i just try to imagine it from memory

               

              3. third option would be to calculate flags in script for each user and use values 1/0 on each recipient as a filter! This may be more complicated as i belive there would have to be some aggregates calculated in first place - but still possible.

               

              hope this helps:

              cheers

              Lech
