Login to SHR server with administrative privilages

go to Start -> Run then type dbisql.exe

Make sure the ODBC data source name is selected as SHRDB.

press connect. (if you are using the default DSN created during the installation no need to input the username and password)

Once it is connected to DB.

go to file menu -> run script  and browse and select the script.  This will run the script and provide the output to default location which is this case C:\HP-SHR\Sybase\IQ15_4\Bin64

In the above screenshot this items are marked in red color. Cut the output file from this location and send it to HP (Make sure this location clean and remove the output files from this location after the activity)

How to customize the first DayOfWeek in SHR/Sybase IQ?

How to customize the first DayOfWeek in SHR/Sybase IQ?
Setting the first day of the week is not technically a setting in SHR. This setting is at the Sybase IQ level, and changes must be made in the database.
The Sybase IQ option DATE_FIRST_DAY_OF_WEEK is, by default, 0, making Sunday the default first day of the week. This option could be set to any of the following values, as appropriate:
First Day
The following SQL code may be run in dbisql.exe to change this setting on the pmdb database: 
set option DATE_FIRST_DAY_OF_WEEK = 1
Change option in this way affect only current user, so you must connect to DB as pmdb_admin user.
update datetime set
week_boundary=case when (datepart(mi,time_full_date) = 0 and
                         datepart(hh,time_full_date) = 0 and
                         datepart(dw,time_full_date) = 1) then 1
              else 0
We must also recalculate week numbers to shift Sundays and Mondays to properly weeks.

SHR Tables and Aggregation -Information

This is Just an information i found it.. This major change is not uddated any in of the documents . So though of sharing with people.

In SHR 9.30 there is no Monthly and above tables. SHR 9.20 had Monthly tables but from 9.30 onwards the aggregation is done in the front end where mponthly and yearly data will be aggregated and presented in the Business Objects level.
