Exporting a custom web report

You can export Web reports to the following formats:

  • DOCX
  • Excel
  • PDF
  • PostScript
  • PowerPoint
  • PPTX
  • Spudsoft Excel
  • Word

You can save the result to a file in the selected format, or you can open the report in the selected application to work with the report data.

Although you cannot save a Web report directly to .csv format, you can still use this format to transfer the data from a Web report to another application. You can save the web report with .rptdesigner extension. After saving the report, you can save to all supported export formats.

To export a custom web report

  1. Run the report.
  2. In the report viewer, click Export Report ().

  3. In the Export Report dialog box, select the format for the exported report.
  4. (Optional) Select which pages of the report to export. By default, all pages are selected.
  5. (Optional) For PDF, PostScript, and PowerPoint formats, select AutoActual Size, or Fit to Page.
    These options help control how large reports are paginated in the selected output file type.
  6. Click OK.
  7. In the File Download dialog box, select whether you want to open or save the file.
    • Open—The report opens in the selected application, such as Excel. (You must have the application installed to use this option.)
    • Save—The Save As dialog box appears. Navigate to the appropriate location, enter a file name, and then click Save
      The links to the underlying records in a list report remain active when you export the report. This means that other users with access to the AR System server  where the report was run can use the links in the report to drill down to the underlying records. However, if a user without access to the AR System server  clicks on the link in the exported report, the user will see a browser "page not found" error.
      Chart drill-down is deactivated in an exported report. Only list report links remain active.

  1. Run the report.
  2. In the report viewer, click Print Report ( ).
  3. In the Print Report dialog box, indicate which pages you want to print.
  4. Click OK.

You can also export the report, and then print the report from the selected application.
