As I drill down in PMF I realize the Options Button feature becomes unavailable. At one higher level it works fine. At the next level the Options button loses the available items in the Drill Menu.

Is their a limit for URL? Is this an issue in the current release ? Will this issue be addressed in a future release ?

Regards, Thank You in advance.

-PMF 5.1.2

It's very familiar to us. The limit you are hitting is in Internet Explorer when using JavaScript to construct URLs, which is how webFOCUS multi-drill works.

In V 5.2 and higher the Options button has been remediated (as the multi-drill links in all PMF Views were in 5.1.2) to work around the limitation in IE - quite a large project, not something that can be patched into 5.1.2 or 5.1.3. So yes, when you upgrade, it will work properly.
