When I create a new report through ISSUE MANAGER | REPORTS, I choose to "Add Columns" to my report and give an Alias to the added fields, why is this alias not stored when I come to access these again?

Problem:

When I create a new report through ISSUE MANAGER | REPORTS, I choose to "Add Columns" to my report and give an Alias to the added fields, why is this alias not stored when I come to access these again?

Resolution:

In Issue Manager you can create a new report under ISSUE MANAGER | REPORTS, and selecting the "New Child Report" icon:



A dialog screen will appear allowing you to enter the search criteria before selecting "Next". On the next screen you will see the "Add Columns" button on the bottom left of the screen - selecting this will bring up an dialog box allowing you to make the selection of the columns you wish to add to your report.

After selecting your columns and adding them to the report, you can then give them an Alias. However, when you come to use these again for another report the column names are still listed as the default; the alias you had previously given to it is not displayed.

This behaviour is as designed and currently cannot be changed as the "Add Columns" list is filled with the names of the Columns in the database. However, there is an RFE logged to have consideration given to changing this behaviour in a future version. If you wish to have your details added to this RFE please contact support@borland.com, and quote this resolution ID.
