Section for multiple universe

Hi Guys,

I have 2 data sources in my Webi report that have the same columns inserted in the form of a Section.

The column names are - Employee Name & No. of Projects.

No. of Projects = Count (Project Name). Project Name is a merged dimension. Project ID is merged as well.

The Section is defined based on the "Project Type" object which is a merged dimension. Project Type has different values for both Universe.

Now, for data source 2, the Employee Name object has Employee IDs. To get the Employee Names for that object, I have added another data source which has objects Worker ID & Worker Name.

Now, I have merged Worker ID with Employee Name object from data source 2. Then, I created a detail object called Employee Name with the following formula -> Employee Name = Worker Name. This way, I get names instead of IDs for Employee Name.

The problem is - How do I get the Section for "Project Type" with columns Employee Name & No. of Projects correct in my Report. Could anyone please help?

    If Project Type is different in each universe, you will need to do some sort of translation (e.g. case statement, derived table) in one universe to make it match the other universe.

    So if one has O, I and J and the other has Outsourced, Inhouse and Joint Effort, then use Left(table.column) on the second universe and use that as Project Type and have table.column as a detail of it, as the project type description.

    You would then be able to merge correctly so that O matches up to O, I to I and J to J.
