A new icon is available for creating Calculated.

  •         Global Variables:

    A completely new type of variables called the Global Variables is available in this Edition of OBIEE. It can be defined in the context of an analysis and can be used in other analysis as well. It is very useful to do some intermediate reusable calculations in between different analysis.
Global Variables can be created from the Criteria Tab on Column Formula , Under Variables select Global Variable, an existing Global Variable can be used or a new can be Created here.

To reference a global variable you need to use the fully qualified name including the context as mentioned below: @{global.variables.variablename}.
