Cognos 10 subreports/views

se_1581 used Ask the Experts™

I need to create a view type table or subreport that i can call from different reports. I need to update this view logic pretty often so I only want to do it once and all the reports see the change. I dont have access to framework manager. Only Report Studio.

What is the best way to do this in cognos 10?

As far as I know you cannot do that in Cognos report studio.

You can create a report as a child report that other reports can drill down/through to but there is no way to have a common report/view that you can do further calculations from.

Your best bet is to go parent/child drill through report.
Create a report that needs frequent change and have prompts so all other parent reports can drill down to it passing values of the data items that are clicked.
