Needs to implement a filter

Hi all,

My requirement is client needs to create a filter "keyword" which contains nearly 75 objects. For example i need to filter out a person in the city i can filter him by so much criterias like "Name,age,surname,job,doornumber etc.,," like that client needs to serach data in the report according to the information which he need among the 75 objects. My question i sis there any simple way to impliment the same at report level or else universe level or else db level.

my assesment is : By creating an object in the universe "keyword" and in properties__>--> Properties tab edit (LOV) defining all the 75 objects as a query level filters will solve the solution is it a better way to do?? beacause while creating the same while running the report with the object "Keyword" it will pop up all the 75 filters at astretch and its time taking process.

Please guys help to find out a better solution.

Note : All the filters are OPTIONAL. It is not neccesary fo rthe client to know all the search criteria.

Thanks & REgards,

    Hi Madhu ,

    It is not a good practice to have 75 Objects / prompts at report . afaik there is no option to search in multiple objects values with a single prompt in BO .

    In the report , you can create Input control for better search on all the data available.

    go through below thread

      Thank you sathish,

      But user needs to have it as filter itself. I tried it to change at universe level by defining an objects and to edit the lov to having all the 75 fields at the select class. At report level it while fetching the created object in the report it will show at prompt level as lov containg the values of 75 fields but need to analyze whether the usage is effective or it will have any negative impact on teh report.
