Date and Time Functions for Easy Date Manipulation

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.

Data Export Tool Review – Flyspeed

Ever needed to create a text file from a data source and you have no tools available to interrogate it? We are doing a cloud Planning Analytics project for a client where they are using an ERP called Finance Plus over a database called Visual Foxpro. Mmmm, I hear you read – why is this […]

Managing Applications from Command Line

Managing TM1 Applications from a command line, or via a Windows batch file. In other words using the TM1 windows based utility “app_maintenance.bat” to execute TM1 processes from Windows.

TM1 10.2 – New Feature: Enable/Disable Applications from Commandline

In this new release of TM1 10.2, a new feature has been added to allow users to perform application maintenance using command line, or in a batch file.

Testing Turbo Integrator Code

In the last post we talked about how we can output String and Numeric values in a Fixed Width Field Format. I realised just after writing the article that I used a not-well-known trick in order to perfect the snippets I posted. This is: Using Calculated Variables to Test Field Calculations. I’m going to use […]

Fixed Width File Format from TM1

When outputting data from TM1 usually we can get away with comma separated values format. Which is standard functionality from a Turbo Integrator process [See ASCIIOutput, TextOutput functions]. Every now and then we need to interface with a ERP system which requires Fixes Width Fields. This presents a few problems, not insurmountable but still not expressly easy either. The […]

Turbo Integrator Syntax Highlighter (Notepad++)

It is no secret that syntax highlighting script editors increase developer productivity. I regularly find myself staring at a chunk of TI processes (especially those written by someone else) for far too long. The combination of black and white text with small, crowded fonts in Turbo Integrator doesn’t help with the readability at all. While […]

Automating Data Transfers between TM1 Servers

Replicating a Cube from a one TM1 Server into another has never been easier. Follow the steps below to copy a cube from one server to another (this includes synchronising TM1 Dimensions). This process uses the ODBO Provider for TM1 and generated MDX. I was going to show how to create an MDX Query for the desired […]

Creating and Expanding a Time Dimension

This post should really be titled “Creating a Time Dimension with a method which allows it to be easily expanded later.” but that simply wont fit. The concept is simple, where previously a time dimension is manually updated and eventually becomes tiresome to update (once every few years) we can instead use one process to […]
