Using Business View as Data Source


<p>I am trying to create a business view that a new client can use with the software product my company has developed. For the most part, I am able to reproduce reports our current ad hoc reporting tool does.</p><p>Now comes the "but" part. Aside from some SQL Expressions used to present different forms for dates and names, I pulled existing fields into business elements whenever possible. One business element in particular is causing massive problems. It relates to account history. I checked the data foundation and find the ActHist table is joined to two other tables. When I try to create a report accessing the ActHist business element, the query created generates a massive series of inner join statements. In all, 26 tables are joined; and that&#39;s not counting the account history table which is all I really want to get data from.</p><p>The problem seems to be with this single business element. Unfortunately, account history is an important reporting source so this needs to be remedied.</p><p>Any help will be appreciated.</p>
