By default, a filter uses Report Variable as the source for filter values. The filter values are dynamically sourced from the document/reporting platform at runtime and the document is filtered using those values. all values for the filter variable. Use this option when the requirement is to filter for all variable values returned by the document query.
Select the Exclude button to exclude one or more values from the Report Variable list.
Report Variable is only supported for a single filter. The BusinessObjects SDK does not support Report Variable for additional filters. Filter values for additional filters must be supplied manually or via Data Source.
Warning: Supplying an invalid value to a secondary filter will result in BusinessObjects producing output that contains ALL DATA. This is a known BusinessObjects issue. We strongly recommend avoiding secondary filters unless you can ensure the values you supply are valid.
Use a Data Source to provide filter values. Select the Data Source button then select a Data Source.
Select the Enter Value(s) button to enter filter values manually.
