           Note:  These functions are supported in the most recent versions.  Older versions may not support a specific function

        4. Using LINK=

          Functions utilizing the LINK= must:

          • include all filters within the function    OR...
          • if using the NL("Link) function within a replicating function [ NL(Rows) or NL(Columns) ] :
            • the NL("Link") must be on the same row as the replicating function  OR...
            • the NL("Link) must be referenced using Excel's absolute referencing ($)


          Supported Examples:
          NL("Rows","Sales Invoice Header","No.","Posting Date",">1/1/2009","LINK=","Sales Invoice Line","Document No.","=No.","Type","Item")
          {Why?  all filters reside within the function} 



          {Why?  the LINK= filter in cell B5 includes an absolute cell reference to the NL("Link") function in cell C3}



          {Why?  Even though the cell reference "C5" is not absolute, cell C5 is contained within the replication area}


          Unsupported Example:


          {Why?  the LINK= filter in cell B4 includes a relative reference to the NL("Link") function which is outside the replicated area)
        5. Function and Report Limitations

          Currently, there are some features that are not available for use with Jet Hub.

          The following data sources are not supported in Jet Hub:

          • Dynamics NAV 2009 and earlier (C/Front)


          Some function arguments are required to be constant.  This means that they must be either hard-coded in the formula or be absolute cell references to cells that are not Report Options.  These include:

          Function Arguments that must be constant:
          • What
          • FilterField
          • Field
          • FlowFilterField
          • What
          • Formula (must be a text string in the function)
          GL (Dynamics NAV)
          • What
          • View
          • Exclude Close

          • Include Unposted
          GL (JetBudgets)
          • What
          • Include Unapproved


          Supported Examples:

          {constant - supported}

          {hard-coded cell reference - supported}

          Unsupported Example:

          {Why?  Cell references to report Options are not supported for these parameters}

          Pivot Table Considerations:

          • Floating-Point Arithmetic

            When values in Excel sum to zero they will often be displayed as a very small value in scientific format (i.e. 163709E-10).  This is due to the precision with which computers can store fractional values and is documented by Microsoft as expected Excel behavior here.

            Reports run in the Jet Hub are affected by the same issue, however small changes in the precision that fractional values are stored that may cause the results to differ slightly from Excel's values.

            For example, Excel may produce a sum of 1.63709E-10, while the Jet Hub value is -7.6761E-10.  These values are both effectively zero (0.000000000163709046319127 and -0.000000000767613528296351, respectively) and should be treated as such because they are likely beyond the significant figures of the values being operated upon.

          • Filters

            Filtering field values will correctly filter data out of a report but may leave rows or columns whose only data was hidden by the deselected values.

            For example, if we hide "Bicycle" from the "Description" field and another field value that intersected with that the Description only had bicycle data in it, the other field value may still be present even though Excel does not show it.  The Bicycle data will not be shown.

        6. The following functions and report features are not currently supported in Jet Hub:

          • ShowQuery=
          • Stored User Data
          • Table Cache Optimization
          • External workbook connections (e.g. OLAP Pivot Tables) cannot be refreshed from Excel online.
          • External workbook connections to other workbooks (Excel > Data > Edit Links) cannot be refreshed in Jet Hub.
          • Use of the VALID and TOOLTIP keywords with the Report Options feature.
          • Using NL("Picture") to retrieve an image from a file.
          • Sparkline Graphs
