The Refresh for active reports setting enables active controls to automatically modify current views of bound active reports when you select a new value. Each bound active report is modified not only by the new selection in the active control with the Refresh for active reports setting, but is based on the current state of all active controls in the active dashboard. This action is triggered at run time when you select a new value in an active control with Refresh for active reports set.
In order to update active reports when a value in the active control changes, you must check the Refresh for active reports check box on the active reports Properties and settings dialog box.
Refresh for active reports is selected by default.
You may want to disable the Refresh option if there are multiple active controls that require each control to be set before you refresh your output. If you are using multiple controls, you can associate the refresh option with a Push Button or Hyperlink, enabling you to refresh the output once all the controls are selected.
The active report options appear.
When an active report is first selected, Refresh for active reports is enabled by default.
The cursor changes into a crosshair.
The Hyperlink Properties dialog box opens.
The Source drop-down only lists the embedded or referenced active reports in the layout.
