Feature Requests

This is a place to request new features for Report Builder. Thank you for your contributions.


I just wanted to let you know that I think the load to RAM feature is the best new feature in RB. Last year, I had to export a large set of tables overnight, but this year, I ran 900+tables for the same project (and more data!) in an hour. This also made me think of a new feature idea—provide an ... [view]


Join tables

I like the feature of adding multiple datasets to my project, but it would be nice if I could join them together like in Tableau. [view]


Message when file is unlocked

0 comment(s)     Mar 8, 2017

Sometimes I'll unlock my datafile to work on it in SPSS. Then I forgot to lock the file and try to compute a table. Report Builder just shows a blank table, but it would be helpful if it showed a message indicating that file is unlocked. I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out why my table wasn't co... [view]


Exclude columns when sig testing

When we apply sig testing, can we add an option to exclude the total column (so that "A" starts on the second column)? [view]


Project weight tied to loop instance

0 comment(s)     Nov 3, 2016

It would be nice to be able to tie the project weight to a loop instance. Sometimes I'll see projects with one weight that's a "global" weight and another weight that's a "country-specific" weight. I've also seen things like one weight for "Global w/out China" and one weight for "Global with China... [view]

To give you some context, I’m building a table that will be showing a long list of brands (~70) and want to bold or somehow highlight the client brands within that list by changin... [view]

Does report builder have the ability to pull directly from SQL? No specific need at this moment, just noodling on ideas. [view]


Secondary stat test

I thought I'd mention some work we've recently done to give you an idea for a future improvement (if you haven't thought of this already). For a series of reports that we've been creating, we have: * Created a series of graphs that show 2016 data, split by different segments. Stat testing is done... [view]


Exclude outliers from base: nullif{comparisons}

5 comment(s)     Sep 15, 2016

Our existing function `nullifeq` can be used to exclude single values from the base, For example `nullifeq(Q1,99)` excludes 99 from the base. But we need functions to exclude ranges from the base, e.g.: nullifgt(nbchildren, 10) -- exclude records where nbchildren > 10 nullifgte(nbchil... [view]
