    a.a.

    Masum, please if you could tell me why I am getting no data for a copy of data foundation I created for testing purposes.

    The report doesn’t have a date parameter and I have to check a database fix for a particular date. Now, the run-around was for me to put the custom sql with the specific Biz_date in a copy of the repository objects being used in the original report.

    Lot’s of work for a small verification! but I did it. created a copy of the report. Now, This data foundation is using the same data connections as the original one. but the copy returns no records?

    what am I missing?

    w/s.

    i don’t know if u can ‘copy’ a DF X (for example)

    You can create a new Business Element Y and point to an existing DF X. This works because the DF is untouched.

    I meant created a new one to point to the existing connection.

    So, you’re saying instead of pointing it to the connection used in X, I should point it to DF X?

    something like that..

    Data Connection DC – A
    Data Foundation DF – A
    Business Element BE – A
    Business View BV – A

    So instead of copying DF -A and calling it, say, DF – A2 to use with a new BE – B .. simply Create the new BE – B and use DF – A as a reference.

    That’s it.

    Else..if u must create a different DF, because the data/logic may change, then start over with :

    DC – B
    DF – B
    BE – B
    BV – B

    Thanks,

    I had to create a new
    DF
    BE
    BV
    because I am using a modified Query. Now the connection remains A since all the tables I need are in A. Do I need to create B (a mirror image of A) for this to work?

    yAs…. you’re good with DC – A .. it’s just like a ODBC DSN … never need to change.
