how to use document link in webi 4.1

Hi,

we are triggering mails on daily basis to end users with Mhtml and with an Excel attachment, because of this my mail size is increasing. so i want to use the document link option instead of adding Excel attachments in sending mail.

We tried that document link option for testing, while opening that link, it is asking username and password. then i entered my credentials, but its not showing refreshed data in document. Its showing that source document which was refreshed some days ago.

I want refreshed document while clicking on that link, Is there any option to use that document link.

    Place your Excel file in BO platform and try using opendoc syntax in the document Link.

    have you tried with selecting the option "Viewer" under the add placeholder at the time of scheduling?

      Thanks for the reply

      Is any SSO access needed to viewing that link for end users?

    Hi Harika,

    The document link has certain parameters. Use sRefresh=Y for refreshing the document to get latest data or sInstance=Last for gettinmg the data from the last instance of the report.

    And if when openeing you do not want to enter credentials then you need to use serialized session.
