HowTo: Advanced Formula for Targets

Ever have this happen to you?  You need need to crank out a scorecard and there are no matching Targets to compare your Actual against?  Well, if you want to create a Target on the fly, use an Advanced Formula within the Data Mapping tab.   You can insert an MDX expression that uses the Actual value in a calculation to produce your target.  In the example above, I take the Reseller Order Count and multiply it by 75% and then add the count again to give me a target.

Hope that helps with needing to create a Target on the fly.

Happy Scorecarding Halloween!
