Authorization in reports


Hello everyone,

i have a quick question for the security guys out there in the BW (and of course everybody else that might be able to help!):

I have created an InfoObject called ZCOMPANY which contains all subsidiaries of our organization.

I have checked the flag Authorization relevant under of the "Business Explorer" tab in the InfoObject maintenance.

Now i need to have the ability to restrict user access to the companies in reports. I have one master set of reports that should be available to everybody but with access only to companies i assign to them.

We have 29 companies in our organization and i would hate to create a report for every one possible combination of companies and assign those reports to individual user by assigning individual roles!

How do i set that up in the role/profile maintenance? which authorization object is the be used and how?

Did anybody ever do this and knows how this works?

Any help is greatly appreciated....
