Is there anyway to view a reporting object in a text editor format? I "inherited" a reporting object with 20 some joins in it and i'm trying to view them all without having to click on everyone of the join nodes in the GUI.

Any ideas?

Nevermind, solved my own issue. If you find the reporting object in app studio, copy it, and paste it on your desktop you can open it in any text editor.

I guess you could also open it from inside app studio in a windows associated tool but i don't have that set up right now.

Click on the reporting object, then control-click on a nearby FEX file, then right-click on the FEX file and open as text.

Both the FEX file and the reporting object should open in text mode.
