  1. Hi. I am finding that maximo throws a pick list parm into the where clause before the code ever gets to Birt’s open method. this can cause problems, when I really don’t want the code in the where clause. turning off the checkbox ‘use where clause’ doesn’t help. Anyone have any ideas on how to turn this behavoir off? (I’m using Maximo 7.1.1.5 and BIRT 2.3.2

    1. Try checking your where parameter in BIRT designer, maybe you have set the default value. If you don’t want to use the where parameter at all in your SQL, just remove the where parameter from the dataset’s open method.
