    Title:
    Stupid Question - how to add two attributes in BI Publisher Desktop
    Content:

    Hello,

    I've been all over trying to figure out how to add Attribute 1 + Attribute 2 in BI Publisher Desktop.  I've tried all different iterations of the advanced code and found no documentation on this.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

      Older version, but should give you some ideas:   https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E10091_01/doc/bip.1013/b40017/T421739T481158.htm

      You should be able to substitute the attributes (in context) into the function arguments.

      Of course, you could just add the attributes in Policy modeling to determine a new attribute and use that in BI ...

      Doing the calculation in OPA is the easiest option! :D

      Thanks, everyone!  Doing it in OPA was a known option - but I didn't need the attribute in OPA for anything other than a total in a form - so I was hoping to do the math in the form and avoid a rule and attribute in OPA.

      Thanks again.
