Nice Search in APEX 4.0

I like to get where I need to be in the fastest possible way... in APEX 4.0 they improved the navigation... On the top right you have a search box, which is a very intelligent search!

I typed 11675:1 and it went strait to page 1 of application 11675!

In the search you can also type table names etc and it will show a list of every component you used that table in. In short; the search is very powerful.

Cool, eh?

My first time at BGOUG

A while ago I presented at the Bulgarian Oracle User Group. It was my first time at that conference and the first time I was in Bulgaria.

The people who where organizing the event where very friendly and it looked like they really appreciated that I accepted their invitation.

Here are some pictures of the event and when we discovered Plovdiv, a little town in Bulgaria.

You can see more pictures of the event or get more info here.

Interactive Report feature I never used before

I never really had a look at the Advanced Attributes of the Interactive Report, but I missed out on some really cool features. It shows that just like Tom Kyte, I learn a new thing every day...

Let's say I've an Interactive Report with amounts per department. The Report ID Item allows me to show a different saved view of the Interactive Report based on who's logged in and in which department they are. You find the Report ID in the APEX_WORKSHEET_RPTS view.

APEX 4.0 will go a step further with the saving of the Interactive reports, but the above is already available in APEX 3.2 and something I will definitely start to use.
