WEBi
My company stores data in different databases in the same network. These databases have the same schema. Can one write say 1 WEBi reports that would get data from different databases. example DB1 has Customer names (A-J) DB2 has Customer names (I-O) DB3 has Customer names (P-Z) from the above scenario, how would one go by to create WEBi report that would display all names (A-Z) Can one create one universe for 1 DB, and some how create WEBi reports that could be written that would get data from these 3 universes or can one use data federator(with one universe), pointing to these 3 DBs

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If I recall correctly, WEBI will only connect to one BO Universe and Universe can only connect to one DB. BO does have a tool – Data Federator that will connect multiple DB’s together and present itself to WEBI as one Universe.
