Shivang Desai was having an issue where the tabcmd command not recognized as an internal or external commandMadhusudhan Khambham started helping Shivang by giving him information on where to find the command line, etc. However, Shivang was still having issues. Tharashasank Davuluru stepped in by asking for more details and providing Shivang with some screenshots that theoretically should have helped. Shivang, let the community know if this problem is resolved by marking a response as correct or letting us know how you solved it!

 

 

Most Viewed Thread

This thread is a couple of months old, but this question comes up time and time again. Aditya Hrishikesh asked How do we display zero when there is no data ? Several people suggested using the zn function in a calculated field, while others suggested the ifnull function. Additional solutions were also presented, such as making some changes to the data via a SQL statement, etc. There are several solutions to this issue, however, it depends on your data, etc. Being able to share your workbook is extremely helpful in a situation like this!
