How to generate a report having all the  fields from two different type of work items  using BIRT ?

If it's possible with RTC queries ??

Your question is not so clear. Of course you can have all the fields from a work item type, but why two different types? Do the two types happen to have the same fields and you want to "merge" them together in the report? It will help if you can clarify your use case.

 Hi Donald,

Thanks for your response.
I have two workitems let say "A" & "B". Both work items have different custom attribites
I want to generate a report consist of attributes from both work items on basis of common attribute.

Depending on what you are reporting and which table you choose, you may need to separate the intended work items from others rather than "combine" them. For example, if you choose the table WORKITEMS from the LIVE_SNAPSHOT, you already have the common attributes of _all_ the work items. In this case, you actually need to use the column WI_TYPE to filter the work items of the types you want.
