I need to create a report which pulls in data from many different portals. Is there a way to combine the power of the merge field with a portal? In other words, what are some alternative ways of not using portals to display related data. My current issue is a portal takes up to much space on the report. Is it common practice to grab related data in a variable and display it as a merge field? if so, how? pulling-out my hair now. thanks.
