    ARC: Filtering by Desc10 field not possible

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 3

    Problem Symptoms:
    We want to filter a report by the Bib Information > Desc10 field, which contains the title information.
    The list for filtering however is incomplete and does not contain all information.

    Limitation in Cognos

    There is a limit, coded into the Cognos software, of 5000 distinct values for any given filter field.
    What you are seeing when you display the Bib Info > Desc10 field are the first 5000 values for that field.
    There is option to change this behavior.

    Use alternate options
    - "Type In Values"
    - "Search for Values", entering one or more keywords, then selecting the appropriate values that show up in the search result.
