Extremely Slow Universe

Our Universes are extremely slow in returning results (Crystal Reports).

Some Facts:

Data Warehouse tables Oracle, 26 million rows, indexed by fiscal year. Report parameters include Fiscal year and Accounting Month.

We watched the SQL from the Oracle side when running a report. It appears that the Universe is not passing the FY parameters from Crystal Reports to utilize the indexing in the data tables, thus is build a massive temp file which is consuming resources and taking a great deal of time to process.

Are we correct in the way this is functioning? What can we do to optimize processing time? How may we pass the FY parameter to the SQL to utilize table indexing?

    Your question seems to resolve quite heavily upon Crystal processing more so than Designer or universe. You might get a quicker and more direct response if you post this in the Crystal Reports expert forum.

      My argument would be that the report function just fine in Crystal connecting directly to the Data Warehouse - most in just a few seconds, but the larger one in less than 5 minutes. The addition of the Universe is the factor that has slowed the reports, so it is not a Crystal problem, it is a Universe problem.

      I will take your advice and post in the Crystal forum as well.
