Saving and Reusing Your Report Output
When you run a report request, by default
the data values are collected and presented in a viewable form,
complete with column titles and formatting features. Instead of
viewing the data values, you can save them to a special data file
- Display as
a webpage, as a printed document, or in a text document.
- Process in
another application, such as a spreadsheet, a database, a word processor,
or a 3GL program.
- Send to another
location, such as a browser or PC.
- Extract a subset
of the original data source in order to generate multi-step reports.
- Extract a data
source to a structured extract file that retains information about
the segment relationships in order to facilitate migration of data
sources and reports between operating environments.
