Based on our years of experience in BusinessObjects reporting tool, we have hand-picked these questions and provided to-the-point answers to each one of them so as to help you prepare better for BusinessObjects job interviews.

In this tutorial, we will look into some of the fundamental and widely asked scenario based questions in BusinessObjects (BO) interviews. Let's get started.

I had earlier posted about column hiding in BO 3.1 using Alerters. BO 4.0 offers a more flexible means of column hiding. This is actually a component hiding feature that works for table/chart etc.

BO 4.0 provides a lot of exciting new features. Here we will take a look into the important new features of Web Intelligence Reports.

Since my last post, I have been asked by people about how would I be hiding a column conditionally when it is not the rightmost column of the table, rather is in the middle.

In several reporting scenarios, BO developers may require to hide columns in a block based on specific conditions. This article will illustrate an example for doing this.

A Derived Table is a logical table created in Business Objects Universe using an SQL query. A derived table in a universe is analogous to a view created in database with a SELECT statement.

Linked Universes are universes that share the same components such as parameters, classes, objects and joins. When universes are linked, one plays the role of derived while other the core universe.

A list of values contains the data values associated with an object. These data values can originate from a corporate database, or a flat file such as a text file or Excel file. List of Values is a powerful feature that allows users to select from a pick list when setting conditions in a query.
