You can clone a report and set the data source as a different query. This feature is useful when the queries have common fields.

 

Note that, after database name and location is changed, you need to update the alias to refer to database table and files.

 

Aliases:

• Are alternative names that the application assigns to the report data source or query.

• Point the report to the source of the report data.

• Simplify using a report after you change the report’s data source location or modify a query’s name or data structures.

• Must be updated when you change the database.

 

In this topic, you will select a new query in an existing report and update the alias to display the new query alias.
