Universes contain:

  • Dimensions (blue diamonds) which retrieve data providing basis for analysis in a document
  • Measures (orange rulers) which represent a calculation applied to the result set
  • Filters (yellow funnels) which are Revenera pre-built filters to apply to the query
  • Mouse over the field for a description
  • Fields are organized into folders that you can expand or collapse using + / - signs.

Query filters are optional but recommended to limit the amount of data returned. Revenera provides a number of pre-defined query filters for Reporter users.

On the Query Filters pane, you can add a pre-built filter (which includes case insensitivity) or create your own.  Select field from left and drag/drop or use > to move into the Query Filter section. Select the filter option (default is "In List" but there are other choices like Not in List, Matches Pattern).  Select the filter type (default is "Constant" but there are other choices like Prompt, Values from List).
