Characteristic Description

Data type and length


Default value



0-1: Optional element that can occur once or not at all.

Relationship Element

Child element


The Omit element contains an expression that evaluates to a Boolean value.

When a user opens a report using a drillthrough action, and the Drillthrough element of the originating report contains parameters that contain an Omit element value of True, those parameters are skipped when the target report is run.

If the target report name (contained in the ReportName element within the Drillthrough element) is not an expression, Omit is not used.
