Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

SpSS modeler Cognos node multiline text in a single cell

A customer of ours uses a Cognos node in SPSS Modeler 18 to access data in Cognos 10. The returned data contains carriage returns/Line Feed character. This results in Cognos that the text being shown as multiline. Getting this data into SPSS modeler by using a Cognos node results in a new table row after each carriage return. This causes the data to broken up in different records. What is needed is an option that would automatically strip the Carriage return/Linefeed Character or would ignore them when they are in a text between ""(or similar). At least one would expect that a Cognos node shows the data similar to Cognos
