Saving a Page View as a Report

Saving a Page View as a Report

I’d like to use a Page View as a report and be able to save it.   Currently when running a page view as a report it opens from me in Internet Explore 8, and I’m unable to save it to send out to clients.  Does anybody have any suggestions?

Re: Saving a Page View as a Report

Hi April,
Since your report is openning up in Internet Explorer my assumption that it could be a .html report. The report file should be in the following location

C:\Documents and Settings\X\Local Settings\Temp

where:
X is your account user name in Windows, and
C: is the name of your local hard drive

Your .html report will be in the end of the Temp folder, if your right click on the .html file you can choose to open the file in Word and save it.

Hope this helps !

Thanks for the suggestion Mohammad, but it didn't work.  The file name is "xml-output.xml", not a .html

Re: Saving a Page View as a Report

Hi April,

There's just one more piece of the puzzle you need.

You are both right about that xml file being the data that EMu uses to create the Page View. To turn that xml data into html, EMu uses an XSLT file (what is XSLT?) that is stored in a similar location:
C:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\Local Settings\Application Data\KESoftware\Cache\[Table][gt] and [lt] symbols I've posted with actual greater-than and less-than symbols. I hope that makes sense.

The steps are:

    1: bring the two files together. Copy them into the same folder, somewhere on your computer. If they are right next to each other, the modification to the xml file is simple.

    2: add the following line of text just after the first line of the xml file:

    Code:

    [lt]?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="something.xsl"?[gt]

    3: Open the xml file with your web browser.
    4: Save the generated html.



The first few lines of your xml file should look like:

Code:

[lt]?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?[gt]

[lt]?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="something.xsl"?[gt]
[lt]!DOCTYPE table
[
  [lt]!ELEMENT table    (tuple)*[gt]
  [lt]!ATTLIST table
            name    CDATA #REQUIRED
  [gt]

If the files are in separate locations, just make sure that you add the full path to the xsl file when you reference it in the xml file.

Hope that helps,

Hi Aaron,
Thanks for your response, but I’m not afraid to admit it’s beyond me.   Currently for the page view, I use a template where all I have to add is the emu column name.  All other coding in xml is Greek to me.      I’m basically looking for a simple fix i.e.: File/Save as….  :) .   Many of our users have been using the page view as a report and just printing it, because they see it as an option in their report list.  If one has to do what you are suggesting, it really isn’t that practical or user friendly; most just want to “drive the car” and not be the “mechanic” to fix it too.
