Editting report removes conditional formatting from calculated field

Robert Sipe shared this problem 5 months ago
Defect Logged

When editing or copying a report, conditional formatting is removed from columns that are also calculated fields. We are on 7.3+ build 20180409.


This seems like it was supposed to be fixed in 7.3 - 20170523: 653 - Fixed issue with conditional formatting disappearing when user edits a report


Is the calculated field an added twist that needs to be corrected?

Hi Robert,

Thanks for reaching out. I don't think this is related to using Calculated Fields. Xavier Ona, also at Credible, logged this as well the other day. I mentioned that the issue that persists comes down to reports that are built using Sub-Qeuries, and also only occurs in 7.3, but all works as expected in 7.4.

Can you confirm whether the report you're using also contains Sub-Queries? This way I can link this also to that existing defect.

Thanks,

Mike

Hi Mike - I checked the report and it is using an append sub-query to another view. The column with the conditional formatting is the data from that sub-query.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for confirming. This is indeed of the same defect I described previously. I've made note in our internal task that you've too noticed this behavior. Also as previously mentioned of course, the solution here would be to update, but if that's not possible I'm afraid there's no workaround I can think of here. Either way, I'll keep you posted on any potential updates regarding this.

Regards,

Mike

Hi Asif,

There's no update on this as of yet. As a reminder, this issue does not occur in 7.4. I've requested an update on this case.
