Hi wf1998

You may want to consider setting up a business view for the master file. That can control which fields the user sees. You can pre-join master files into a cluster and then create a business view based on the joined master files. The one thing it can't do that a reporting object can is apply filters the user can't override.

Regards,


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Not sure that you will get suggestions on what tool to use to replace IBI BI tools...

Being in a IBI forum may not be the right place to ask that kind of questions...

Just my thought

A person walks into a BMW dealer and the sales person comes over to talk.

Sales Person: "Can I help you?"

Potential Buyer: "Yes, I am looking for a car that isn't a BMW, could you suggest one please?"

Now fill in your own final scenario and enjoy your day Smiler
