Is there a tool or function to where I can enter a table from a universe and see all BO reports that contain that table?

I am trying to locate a tool or function where I can enter a table from a universe and see all BO reports that contain that table. EX: I have a report “Trade Information” with a column called “Date”, when I look at the Query Script Viewer I see the table involved for that column “Date” is DATA_FIELD.ADMIN.DATE, I would like to run a query for “DATA_FIELD.ADMIN.DATE” that would return all reports that would be using the table “DATA_FIELD.ADMIN.DATE”. Ideally it would also tell me the column and the SQP used for that column. Is there a tool or function that can do that? Thanks!!

    There is no out of box tool available in BO. There are some 3rd party vendors have the tool which will give the information you are looking for.

    David,

    If it is a table within the Universe / UNX then the only option I know of that I have used before is SAP Information Steward to do impact analysis. The tool is from SAP and you can even talk to your sales rep to get a 90day trial copy.

    Information Steward | Data Profiling & Integrity | SAP
