On import, the data has not been delimited and so appears in one cell (per row).

I can see the 'text, delimited' option but not the means to specify exactly how the data has been delimited...

Please advise next steps

Many thanks,

Testing New Google AdWords Connector Mon, 12 Aug 2013 08:49:20 -0400 chris 2281@/discussions
We are now in a position to test a new Omniscope Google AdWords connector.

The Google AdWords API is quite large, and unfortunately we are not Google AdWords users ourselves, so before we start development we need to gather requirements and prioritise key functionality.

If a Google AdWords connector is something you would be interested in, and if you would be prepared to help us develop this connector, please tell us:

  • What would you like the connector to do? What types of reports do you want to download?
  • What options would you like to see? Please base this on other connectors such as GoogleAnalytics. The more specific the better, for example "A dropdown to select campaign", "A dropdown to select keywords" etc. We would like you to tell us how the Google AdWords connector should work.
  • Would you be able to help us out with development by arranging a short screen-sharing session and demonstrating how you use the Google AdWords online application? This will help us get a better understanding of the types of queries being undertaken on the Google AdWords platform and how these might translate to an Omniscope connector.
  • Are you able to provide us with a test account that we can use to develop the connector?

Once we have gathered enough requirements we will develop and deploy the connector. This will initially be made available only to users who have registered interest on this forum or who have contacted us privately. Once the connector has been sufficiently tested we will make it available to all Omniscope users.

Data Validation: Adding Leading Zeros Wed, 23 Nov 2016 10:45:42 -0500 aa1708 3190@/discussions Small visual bug in omni mobile + workaround Mon, 31 Oct 2016 14:59:46 -0400 CRead 3183@/discussions

I have the following CSS, which doesn't remove it:
* {overflow: hidden;}
html {overflow: hidden;}
body {overflow: hidden;}

(cut down from reality, but you get the idea).

I sometimes manage to remove it with jQuery (already in use in view):

$('.nested', window.parent.document).css({overflow: 'hidden'});

But that won't work if the iframe is on a different domain (for whatever reason). It also flashes up on load, even with the code at the top.

I could, of course, use the override css feature in 3.0, but I'm not able to use that for all files as of yet.]]>

Oracle connection reading records in batches of 10 Wed, 12 Oct 2016 14:04:25 -0400 benjamin 3180@/discussions
I am connecting to a oracle database through the omniscope data manager using the database table block

When omniscope reads in data from oracle it seems to read the records in batches of 10 (I.e the number of records in the data block increase by 10)

When i connect to the same oracle database through Oracle SQL developer it reads in 1000 records at a time

In essence is there any setting in omniscope to allow the oracle block to read in more records then 10 each time ?

Data sources: Sizmek Problem - Slightly changing names Tue, 27 Sep 2016 07:24:47 -0400 JohnMR 3176@/discussions
I'm using two Sizmek feeds to pull in impression data.

The data that's being pull is correct but the names keep changing. Omniscope is removing spaces from some placement names, campaign names and agency names. I noticed in agency name because I'm only pulling two but the output has shown there is 4.

I'm just using the two feeds and an append so nothing in the process should be changing this.

Has anyone had this problem?

Thanks, John. ]]>

Problem with PDF visualization in iOS 10 Fri, 16 Sep 2016 04:10:35 -0400 enrico68 3173@/discussions
After passing to this OS all the PDF produced and exported by Omniscope are not visible anymore when using Apple internal PDF visualizer, that is the standard used here.
PDF were perfectly visible on previous version of iOS (9.x) and can still be opened in Acrobat Reader also on iOS 10.

Do you have some ideas about this issue?

I attach a print of the PDF export settings and an example of the PDF that cannot be opened any more.

Please update and let us know if you encounter any issues.


Date/ week calculation: Date minus an integer Wed, 24 Aug 2016 07:40:38 -0400 craven99 3166@/discussions
I have a week field - which was duplicated from a standard date field and works fine. But our payroll team work on a back week so they wish the filter to be the current displayed week minus 1 week.

CONVERTIR A JAR Mon, 20 Jun 2016 17:09:47 -0400 Katherinortega90 3143@/discussions ]]> Switching measures by using Variables: Ordering of Field Options Thu, 09 Jun 2016 08:56:06 -0400 Phillipa 3137@/discussions I have created a variable (Analyse by:) to allow users to select a field to put on the Y axis of a pivot table e.g. age, fitness etc

A formula field (Stack by) then links their selection to the Y axis. It is working well with one slight snag - the ordering of the options in the selected field is coming out alphabetically and not as in the original field. It does not appear possible to change this.


Does anyone have workaround to this problem?

Pivot View: Export of Aggregated Data in Excel tables Mon, 06 Jun 2016 08:33:42 -0400 Phillipa 3135@/discussions We are constantly being asked by clients if it is possible to export the view data into excel tables.

I am aware that this option exists but what the clients really want is aggregated data in a format similar to a pivot table.

When I export from the pivot table to excel I get aggregated data but cannot restrict which fields are exported.
This results in unneccessary fields, which are often meaningless as they contain "no value" as there is no unique single answer due to aggregation.
This is not very intuitive for our clients.

Ideally I would like to be able to reproduce a pivot table view in an excel table.

Can anyone help me with this problem?
Thanks for any advice.
