    For sure you can do this,

    you can use "business views" to create a universe using more than one database connection and here you can use this universe and create ur reports.

    other way you can create a multiple query reports using the WebI, every Report Come from different universe and every universe has its own database connection

    good luck

    could you, please, specify how to use "business view" into Univerese Desiner and have access to databases on the different servers?

    • The "Business View" and the "Universe" are different semantic layer products offered by BusinessObjects an SAP Company.

      Historically, the "Business View" comes from Crystal Reports, and the "Universe" comes from Web/Desktop Intelligence.

      Crystal Reports can report off of Business Views and Universes.

      Web/Desktop Intelligence can report off of Universes and not Business Views.

      You'd not be combining Business Views and Universes.

      An Universe is restricted to one connection at a time - this is by design.

      If what you wish to have is to change a data connection depending on the Enterprise User, you can accomplish this by defining Access Restrictions in the Universe Designer, by specifying a different Connection and associating the restriction to an Enterprise User or User Group.

      If what you wish to do is connect to multiple data sources at one time via a Universe, I'd recommend investigating the Data Federation/Integration products:

    HI,

    As for as my knowledge goes You can't create a universe from multiple databases in a single point of time.

    but for reports u can create from multiple connections.

    In deski

    data manager -> add another connection -> create reports from both data providers.

    for that also you should have a common dimension in both data providers otherwise you ll get in coorect results.

    If helpful reward some points.

    With regards,

    Suresh babu Aluri.
