Despite all of the current chaos, we are getting ready to upgrade our Spotfire installation. I’m a bit sad we are only going from 10.2 to 10.3, but 10.3 is the last LTS version. In performing testing in our dev environment, we ran into errors with data functions using packages. This post will explain how to resolve the error — ‘xyx package’ was built by an R engine with different internals. Read on to learn how to resolve data function errors when upgrading Spotfire.Read More »Resolve Data Function Errors When Upgrading Spotfire
In last week’s post, I showed you how to populate type curve inputs with IronPython and toggle between different sets of inputs. This week, I’ll go one step further using an R function to select type curve inputs from a table and then load them into document properties. Read on to find out how.Read More »Select Type Curve Inputs with Property Controls
A few weeks ago, I was working with TIBCO support to troubleshoot long run times on a TERR data function. They suggested a simple setting modification that I had overlooked. It had a very big impact. Read on if your data functions run slowly and you’d like to speed them up.Read More »How to Speed Up Data Functions
I know I said I would revert back to IronPython posts. But, I had to do a bit of TERR work this week that I… Read More »How to Add Calculated Columns With TERR
- Would you like to create a new table based on unique values from a different table?
- Would you like to learn how to reference a column in a TERR data function?
- Are you combining data from different sources and having problems with duplication?
Modules, packages, and repositories are three terms that often cause confusion for analysts as they leave BI tools behind and begin to write their own code. I’ll reference these terms in many future posts, and you’ll continue seeing them throughout your career. We’ll cover the basics of each and go over a few examples in Python and R.Read More »Modules, packages, and repositories. Oh my!
