Exporting BO XI WebI Reports - How to


I'm quite green when it comes to BO & Reporting, I would appreciate as many details as you can muster.

My goal is to send a Web Intelligence report using the scheduling system to a Web server (SharePoint). I assume exporting the WebI report to a HTML format would be the easiest way to publish the Report on the web server (would be easiest for end-users so they dont have to load another app). Although, exporting to HTML is not an option that I see (only WebI, PDF & XLS).

Currently, I have found I can:

schedule a report to run,

export the report to email, file location, & ftp

export to Excel, or PDF

Can anyone provide any tips how to export to an external / network drive in a web format?

As a band-aid, I'm sure I can figure out myself how to


export a PDF (or XLS),

to a network (or FTP) drive, onto the web server

and on the web server, publish that file

Thank you,

    Hi Drew,

    Depending on your version there is a Sharepoint integration kit. This allows you to put report parts directly into sharepoint, and as far as I remember show infofiew explorer. This might suit your needs better than exporting.

    • Hi Drew,

      HTML export is not support in WebI, only in CR.

      Alan`s idea would be the best. Another would be:

      Exporting to pdf to a share on your Sharepoint Server. Create a website on your IIS linked to the Report. Than you could easily put that link (eg. http://yourserver/report.pdf) on your sharepoint Portal and the users can view the .pdf.
