Hi all,

Can any one explain what is the meaning of below formula
IF((@ISUDA (Department, @NAME(@UDA(Department, @NAME(@PARENT(@CURRMBR(Department)))))))
@UDA(Department, @NAME(@PARENT(@CURRMBR(Department))))

where Department is Just a DIM and we don't have Department as UDA

It's returning the value of the User Defined Attribute if one exists for the current member matching the parent name. Without the context of the formula it's difficult to say exactly what it's doing. If you're struggling with any of the formula command (@UDA for example) type them in to google and the oracle online documentation will tell you what it does,
