The special filter field "Schema=" can be used to override the default database schema (that will be used in the query) with the one specified in the Filter parameter following "Schema="

This special filter is designed to be used with NL() functions that return specific values. In NL() functions where the "Field" parameter is either left blank or contains a specified field cache, "Schema=" will return the correct data, but any NF() functions that reference that field cache cannot recognize the "Schema=" restriction.


To accomplish the desired results, it is a simple matter to make a slight design change in a report.
