Business Objects 11 does not allow optional parameters?
Posted on 2006-06-29
I'm new to Business Objects but another dept in our company is designing some reports for us in BO 11. We wanted to allow the operator to skip keying in certain parameters when running some of the reports when applicable. They tell us that BO does not allow optional parameters. Every prompt to the operator for data must get some non-null response. Is this true? This seems like a strange limitation for a product this mature.
