After you create a report, you can send it:
You can also view reports outside of the browser in a standalone helper application such as Adobe Reader or Microsoft Excel. In Windows Folder Options, File Types (Advanced Settings), uncheck the Browse in same window option for the file type; such as .pdf or .xls. When the Browse in same window option is not selected, the browser window created by WebFOCUS is blank because the report output is displayed in the helper application window.
Note that if you selected the Save Report check box in the configuration pane of the WebFOCUS Administration Console (under Redirection Settings), you will be prompted whether to save or open the output file. If the procedure contained a PCHOLD command that specified an AS name for the output file, the name is retained if you choose to save the file. If no AS name was specified, a random filename is generated.
If the output is produced as a result of a GRAPH request, the returned HTML file contains a link to the actual graph output, which is stored as a temporary image file (for example, as a JPEG, GIF, or SVG file). The image file will eventually expire and be deleted from the server. For information about saving the graph output, see Creating a Graph.
You cannot send a report directly to a printer in WebFOCUS.
