- WebWORQ does not support the evaluation of cross-worksheet formula references. For example, a formula on a sheet named “Sheet1” that references a cell on a sheet named “Sheet2”:
- Not all Excel cells referenced by a function need to be in the Range to Publish. For details on the parameters and behaviors of these functions please refer to Excel and TM1 documentation.
- Although the Excel VLOOKUP function is supported, we recommend that it be used sparingly. As a matter of “best practice” we strongly advocate the use of TM1 dimension attributes combined with the DBRA function for lookup purposes in spreadsheets. In the long run, use of attributes leads to easier maintenance and a more robust system.
