Description

Extended fields are not available to dot-walk in the reporting slushbucket when clicking on the 'Choose columns' option for a List report.

In list reports or list views where some of the dot-walk fields are in non-scope tables, these can not expand, as the (+) is not visible unless the scope fields are expanded.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a new report against the [task] table.
  2. On the Type tab, select 'List'.
  3. On the Configure tab, select "Choose columns".
  4. Notice that none of the extended table fields have an option to dot-walk. There is not [+] icon next to the field. They are even displayed in red. Here is an example with 'Problem [Incident]':
  5. Click on one of green field (reference field) to make the dot-walk icon appears between both lists above the 2 arrow icons < and >.
  6. Click on the dot-walk icon.
  7. At the top of the list, you should see 'Task fields' in blue.
  8. Double click on 'Task fields'  to return to the previous fields you were viewing on the [task] table.
  9. Scroll down and notice that extended table fields now have the ability to dot-walk to them, the [+] icon next to the field is being displayed as well as the dot-walk icon between both lists above the 2 arrow icons < and >.
  10. Running the report might still not work even if the extended field is dot walked to in this way.

Workaround

A List view can be used with dot walked extended fields on versions New York Patch 7 hot fix 1 or later.

Expand a dot walk field that are in scoped tables first, and then the sign (+) is visible for the non scoped tables.
