      Helen and Craig,

      Thanks a bunch for your reply! I completely agree that Omniture should
      get rid of that distinction, it has done nothing but made my life hard
      as far as breaking down traffic by commerce and vice versa. Discover
      can be so slow at times compared to SiteCatalyst. I've had them set up
      2 for now and will go with 5 once I test how this works.

      Craig, when you say you mirror your s_prop and eVars, can you tell me
      how you do that? I don't have a background in IT, so any
      implementation I have done externally, however they always want to
      know the how and why? Can you elaborate a little bit? Unless can I do
      it on my own {I have administrative rights to Omniture}? Much thanks!

      Correlations refer to traffic reports, while Subrelations refer to
      commerce reports. This was not by intelligent design, but rather a
      manifestation of how the tool evolved from a traffic tool to a traffic
      tool with conversion tools added. I remember one of Omniture's
      founders kicking around the idea of finally getting rid of the
      distinction from a technical standpoint, which I would love, because
      often the things I want to breakdown are Traffic reports (geo-Seg,
      Referring domains, etc.) by Commerce reports (campaigns, internal
      search terms, etc.). The solution as it stands is for me to mirror
      eVar values into an s_prop, or vice-versa.
