2281819 - Detailed Reporting does not offer external code for Employee Central field along with description

Symptom

An attribute (e.g. Job Code) appears in its table in Detailed Reporting showing only its internal code, which does not match the one shown in Employee Central.  A separate "...(Label)" field provides the code's description, but there is no field for the external (user-facing) code.

Environment

Online Report Designer and Detailed Reporting, non-Realms

Cause

Most object tables only include the internal code for each attribute.  This then links to a separate table to retrieve further information, e.g. labels and external codes.  Each value requires a separate auto-join between the two tables, and there may only be one in place by default.

Resolution

Raise a support incident to ask for the missing codes to be made available.  Product Support will create an additional auto-join to generate an extra field containing the codes.
