Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Analytics work center.
  2. Go to the Design Reports view.
  3. Open the advanced filter (magnifying glass icon).
  4. Click on the "More Options" button for the field Created By (It looks like an arrow and plus symbol).
  5. Click the "But Exclude" check box.
  6. Enter the users name or choose from the value help.
  7. Click OK.

Here you will notice that the reports created by this user have not been excluded.


Currently the Exclude function does not allow for the exclusion of formatted names with a comma symbol. E.G. Last Name, First Name.
