Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a new query in Advanced Reporting
  2. Select the driving table e.g. Global Job Information
  3. Now expand the related tables
  4. Search for the object "Person (Custom Field => Employee ID) Personal Information"
  5. You cannot find it anymore even though it was available previously


In b2005 we have simplified the object display name in Advanced Reporting for better usability.


There was no functionality change in b2005 and the objects can be found in the same place they were available before.

In the example above, the display name behavior would be like as follows:

  • Before b2005: Person (Custom Field => Employee ID) Personal Information
  • After b2005: (Custom Field) Personal Information

Example of the change using a custom MDF object:
