Symptoms

Drilling into a detail report with a hierarchy produces a detail report with all hierarchy values, not only the expanded/drilled values as expected.

Recreated the issue in 11.1.1.6.2 BP1 Sample Sales.


  1. Open the History Overview report.
  2. Expand some of the Product Hierarchy to drill down into the levels. For example: expanded All Products >> Biz Tech >> Communication >> Cell Phones.
  3. The rest are still collapsed (+).
  4. Clicking on the V5x Flip Phone for 2009, then going to Detail report.  See the resulting detail analysis, here all products expanded and are seen, as well as shown for 2009.


Expect the resulting detail report to only be for All Products >> Biz Tech >> Communication >> Cell Phones for 2009.
