Quick Tips for Report Creators
The HTML tool released on November 18, 2018, almost eliminates the need for Java Applet. The Applet handles two known issues (see below), has gridlines, and allows you to copy a simple table from one document to another document. If you need the Applet for one of those reasons, see the Knowledge Base article, How to Use the Java Applet.
Other new features for Report Creators include:
- Settings are persistent within your session. If you turn off your Data Preview Panel in the query window, it will stay off for your session.
- You can apply subtotals where they are needed and omit them if there is only one row in the group (see KB article, Advanced Techniques for Value-Based Breaks).
- You can add descriptions to your variables.
- Calculation of elapsed time has been simplified with the DateBetween() and TimeBetween() functions (see KB article, How to Calculate Elapsed Time).
- Not only can you hide your table’s dimensions, but now you can now hide measures.
- Format multiple tables and charts at one time (see KB article about positioning tables on your report).
To learn more about these and other features, see our Creator Videos, or Creator Knowledge Base Articles.
