Multiple Start Time Entry


I am working on the Audit Universe using Business Objects 4.1. I am using the IDT for the universe development. Basically, I created a report that shows the object name and its starttime when a report is ran. The filter I am using is starttime begin and starttime end. When I run a report in Crystal Reports, I seem to get more than one entry even if I ran the report only once. The difference in time can be from from 30 seconds to 5 minutes. The report takes about 3 minutes to run.

Can someone explain why I get more than one entry please?

    What were the actions you see in the report? It is just run.

    • Does the Crystal report have data saved with it? If so, here is the probable sequence of events:

      1. Retrieve the report that has saved data.

      2. The report shows the retrieved data - this is view event 1.

      3. BO discards the saved data and then runs the report - this is the refresh event.

      4. The report shows with the new data from the database - this is view event 2.
