Working with Different Universes in Desktop Intelligence

Can I create a report in Business Objects/Desktop Intelligence from 2 seperate universes?  If so how do I add the relationships.  When I tried this, it did not work.

Yes. there should be no issues in creating a report from 2 different universe.
However to get meaningful results..usually you create 1 query from Universe A and 1 query from Universe B with at least 1 common dimension.
You can then merge this dimension and view your results on the common dim.
eg. you get Region(dim) and Sales(number) from Universe A
you get Region(dim) and Population(number) from Univers B.
You can do this - merge Region and view a report like
Region, Sales, Population....

hope this helps
