Adding objects from the Report Objects panel

The Report Objects panel, which is a part of the Object Browser, displays a list of all the objects to which you have access that are included in the report definition. They may or may not all currently appear on the report.

Objects in the Report Objects panel that are being used on the report are displayed in gray.
Objects in the Report Objects panel  that are not currently being used on the report are displayed in black.

If you add a prompt to your report, you will be required to answer the prompt when you save the report. If you select Save report as prompted when you save the report, any subsequent times you open the report (in Editable or Presentation Mode), you will have to answer the prompt. Also, if you edit a prompted report and add another prompt to it, you will have to answer any prompts that you added during this session when you save the report. For more information about saving a report, see Saving reports. For more information about prompts, see About prompts.

If your report contains prompts, the first time you save the report you must answer the prompt. Each subsequent time you open the report in editable mode, you must answer the prompt before the report opens. If you add additional prompts to the report, when you save, you will answer the prompts that you added during this editing session only.
