Parameter specific to a tab in the report


Hello All,


We are converting Oracle discoverer reports to Oracle BI Publisher reports. Some of the discoverer reports in our environment have multiple tabs and these tabs have parameters that are specific to that tab. For ex:


Discoverer Report : ABC

Tab1                      : Employee by Dept

Tab2                      : Employee by Manager


Tab1 has parameter Dept Id

Tab2 has parameter Manager Id


The dept id parameter of Tab 1 has nothing to do with the data in Tab 2.


BI Publisher allows the creation of separate layout within the same report and each layout can house a different data set, the layouts do show as separate tabs, however the parameters that we define in data model is shown on the top of the report (above all the tabs). BI Publisher assumes that the parameter/s defined in the data model is applicable to all the data sets.


Howdy, Stranger!
