Webi report output in excel

Hi all,

When the output of a webi report is in excel format, the header and the footer information are not getting displayed. Is there a way to get the header and footer in the excel output automatically.

Thanks

    Hi Ash,

    Headers and Footers cannot be exported to excel.

    Headers and Footers can only be seen in PAGE LAYOUT mode, which tells that it is seen only in PDFs and not excel.

    In case you want to see the Header in excel, you can have the header displayed in the BODY of the report rather than in the HEADER of the report. All that is present in the BODY of the report appears in excel as well.

    You couldn't get the information from the header and footer sections of your WebI report into the Excel spreadsheet. All you have to do is to move the report title from the header section into the report body section, then it will get exported into Excel.

    As per my knowledge, there is no workaround to get the header and footer in the excel output automatically
