This Essbase application configuration setting enables calculation tracing to help debug calculation scripts.
The tracing is done on the cell specified by using the SET TRACE calculation command, or by selecting the cell in Smart View. The output is available in Smart View, as well as in a file,
calc_trace.txt, located in the cube directory.
CALCTRACE OFF | ON
OFF – Calculations are not traced. Any SET TRACE commands in calculation scripts are ignored. This is the default.
ON – Calculations can be traced. You can specify a cell to be traced in Smart View by selecting a cell in the grid before executing a calculation script. You can also use SET TRACE commands in calculation scripts if you need to trace multiple cells.
