Turbo Integrator uses SQL like commands to interrogate data for loading into cubes or updating dimensions. This section gives detailed information about using TI functions and how they can be applied to real world examples.
Here is how to simply delete a single element from a dimension in TM1. Note DimensionElementDelete permanently deletes the element from the dimension and all associated data from any cube the dimension is used in – so please be careful!
When we run a Turbo Integrator process in TM1, the Transaction Log will normally have a record written for each data change. To speed up the TI, we can turn off transaction logging for a TI using the command CubeSetLogChanges.
Here is a great way to create virtual dimensions in TM1 based on attributes. These allow you to intersect multiple virtual dimensions from the same physical dimensions in a PAW or PAX report. Here we discuss the CreateHierarchyByAttribute function and give an example on how to use it.
Use, syntax and example of the DType function in TM1 and Planning Analytics. In this post we explain the use of the DType function and give an example of how it can be used to determine the cell type of a cube when loading data via a Turbo Integrator process.
The MONTH function in TM1 allows us to extract the number representing the Month from a date. Here we explain it’s syntax and give an example combining it with the DATE function.
Here is a really easy method for checking if an Attribute Exists in TM1 via Turbo Integrator process. It essentially does what an “AttributeExists” or an “AttrExists” function would do for you if they existed in TM1.
The Date Function in TM1 converts a serial date from a number to a string. For example Date(13947 , 1); will return the string ‘1998-03-09’.
Manipulating dates and times in TM1 has always been horrible. Here we discuss the time manipulation methods available from TM1 v10.2 onwards. These include NewDateFormatter, FormatDate and ParseDate. With them you can even change time from one time zone to another.
To create a dimension in a TM1 model use the DimensionCreate function in Turbo Integrator processes. Combine with IF and DimensionExists.
To check if a dimension already exists in a TM1 model use the DimensionExists function in Turbo Integrator processes. Combine with IF and DimensionCreate.
