Topic: Business Intelligence Files
Owner: Michael Armstrong-Smith

Subtopic: Kaleidoscope 2008

Have you ever tried using Oracle's date hierarchies in Discoverer only to find out that they don't work very well or that your date indexes no longer work? Have you ever wanted to know how to manage your fiscal calendar, or even how to work out the number of business days between any two dates? If the answer to any of these questions is YES, then this is the presentation for you. Michael will show you how to manage a fiscal calendar for use with Discoverer. He will also give you many tips and tricks for managing and working with dates. Don't be drawn into thinking that this presentation is only for Discoverer because what you learn here can be applied to most SQL based applications.
