    I have a report that initially creates several reports in 6 tabs. Each tab has a drill down (multiple linked reports) to a shared report and somer unique reports.

    Having read earlier posts I am still not clear how create a back button on the drill down reports that will direct the user back to the same tab that the drill down was initiated from.

    Also what will be the impact if the drill down report is called from another report that does not have tabs, will the back button still work.

    Currently the back button button always defaults to the first tab in any tab report, this is done via 'dbr.purehtml:<FORM><INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="Back" onClick="history.go(-1);return true;"></FORM>'

    A report can contain multiple tabs (even within tabs). The tab is considered to be part of the state of the page (much like selected sorting order) and is not by default referred in the URL where the history refers to.

    myDBR does however support selecting specific tab in the URL. First make sure you have the latest build (as the jQuery UI change broke the earlier version). And check the export to PDF URL when changing tabs.

    Easiest solution is to open the linked report into a new page, so that user is left the old page with all selections intact.
