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.

Mutli-cube table

(Please refer to the file for detailed screenshots)


In the following example, we want to create a book in which end-user can define a mapping for an allocation.

We wish here to allocate Shared Adv & Marketing Expenses (from Europe Mkt services) across Europe Business Units. The Allocation key for each Adv & Marketing Expenses can be the Sales, Revenue or COS.

To store the user-defined allocation key for each account, we create a mapping cube with a picklist


We then build a report displaying both cubes

On this report we want to help the user define a mapping based on existing data (in large models the number of accounts can be huge). This means that the zero-suppression of this multi-cube report is going to be driven by the main data cube.

Here are the lines we want to hide (base on the zero-out of the data cube)

We then hide the second view row headers to “fuse” both view into one table

Blocking points

1 – It’s not possible for a view to drive the zero-suppression of another view. This means that it’s not possible to align both rowset when zero-suppr is on.


2 – It is not possible to sync the state of both view to keep them aligned: scrollbar, header size, zoom etc…

State your current workaround

There’s none in PAW. The alternative is to make an excel extraction and build the report manually through VLOOKUP

State any proposed solution

We should be able to create table that can fetch data from different cubes. The dimensions that we can place in Row/Column should only be the ones shared between the cubes. The user will have to choose which cube drives the zero-suppresion
