    You should be able to create a multi source universe which merges both the BEx Query and the Oracle database tables. Here are some links to get you started. As Tammy has suggested, you should review this with your Data Architect or whoever on your team is responsible for building universes:

    You should do this on the backend; Design Studio doesn't have this capability. For speed and performance also, I recommend you do this on the backend.

    • For this to work in Design Studio, the data needs to be combined on the backend; perhaps you could share details of your data model and post this in the Semantic Layer space? Just my take only
