types of sources that can be linked

Can I link two reports each based on a different IM?
Further, if so, can we have an OLAP source IM link ( drill down) to a relational type info map?
thanks,

For your first issue, the two linked reports do not have to be based on the same information map. However, if you are passing prompt values from one report to the other, then each map must have data items in common that can be associated with the prompts.

For the second issue, if I understand the question correctly, the answer is "no", you cannot link maps together. It is possible to set up an olap information map to drill through to detail data. The detail data would open in a separate window as a flat table.

Yes, you can link from an OLAP report to a relational report, but not vice versa.

Also, fyi, here is a sample on linking: http://support.sas.com/kb/26/174.html
