I have added a new function to a package . This package has already been registered in discoverer administrator .

How do I call that new function in my select statement from my existing discoverer administrator report please ? Thanks .

    As far as I know, you register individual functions in Discoverer Administrator, not packages.  Did you try importing the individual function?

    When you say "my select statement from my existing discoverer administrator report" - are you talking about a custom folder?  You should be able to reference the function as you would in any select statement.  I don't think it needs to be registered to do that.

    If you want to use it in a Desktop/Viewer report, when you're creating/editing a calculation, there's a radio button that lets you switch from "Items" to "Functions".  Under functions, expand "Database" and you'll see the functions that have been registered.  (That's in Desktop.  I don't have access to Viewer but I think it's a similar process.)

    What have you tried so far?  Are you getting an error?
