Running a report by using an Open Window active link
The Open Window active link method of running a report is useful when you want to run a report as part of an application, or create your own interface for launching reports. Within the definition of the active link, you direct the report to a specific form, and also define which requests to include in the report. After defining the active link, attach it to a workflow trigger, such as a button field. When the user clicks the workflow trigger where the active link is attached, a new browser window opens to display the report.
The following procedures outline methods of creating an Open Window active link:
- Creating an Open Window active link for web reporting
- Attaching an Open Window active link to a form with a button field
