[SOLVED] WebFocus Joins
 Login/Join

We are new to webfocus and need to join all the tables in a datasource by default because our users do not know how to join tables correctly. Is there any way to do this?

We had SAP business objects before, and we can autolink all the tables automatically. The software looks at the foreign key relationships and figures out the joins. You can then change the joins to outer joins, change the join fields, delete joins, etc. however you want. When tables are joined, you don't even have to show the users the primary key fields which do not mean anything to the users.

Create Synonym for all the tables.
Create a Cluster Synonym that allows you to join the above synonyms. What you describe exists in WebFOCUS as well.

Look at page 198 in this doc:
