As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only. Moving forward, myibi is our community platform to learn, share, and collaborate. We have the same Focal Point forum categories in myibi, so you can continue to have all new conversations there.

Hi,

Which is the better way of creating the filters and what is the difference between the two?
1. In the master file
2. Creating inside the info assist page

Thank you in advance.

Depends what you need. In Masterfile the filter applies to everyone using the masterfile., in Infoassist it will be used for that report only.


Test: WF 8.2
Prod: WF 8.2
DB: Progress, REST, IBM UniVerse/UniData, SQLServer, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Greenplum, Athena.
