Goal

You have a report in OBIEE 11.1.1.5.5 and you want to be able to click on a cell and have another dashboard page open in a new browser tab or window.  You want to pass some parameters to the reports in the new dashboard from the original report.  However the presentation are tables used in the new dashboard are not the same as used in the original report.  Thus you cannot use drill down.

You cannot use GoNav as it can only call reports and not dashboards.
You cannot use PortalNav as it is opened in the same page, and there is no Target parameter to specify the target page.
