Converting Detail Reports from Versions Earlier than 6.0

You can use the Report Designer to modify Detail reports created in documents prior to version 6.0.

Version 6.0 and later opens Detail reports in read-only mode. To work with the contents of a Detail report, you must first convert it to the new Report Designer format.


Note   You can convert Detail reports to Report Designer format only if the results set is saved with the document. If your results set is not saved with your document, reprocess the query and then choose File then Save Results With Document.

To convert a Detail report to Report Designer format:

  1. In the Section catalog, select the Detail report you want to convert.
  2. The detail report is displayed in the Content pane and a Detail menu appears on the menu bar.

  3. Choose Detail then Convert To Report.
  4. converts the Detail report to the new Report Designer format and inserts a new Report section into the document. The original Detail report is left unchanged.

While every effort has been made to make the converted report as close as possible to the original Detail report design, you may need to clean up some reports, especially those that use computed items, multiple page headers/footers, or complex formatting.

Detail reports can be exported from Brio Intelligence 6.x to all of the previously supported formats, including Excel (.xls), Lotus 1-2-3 (.wks), tab-delimited text (.txt). comma-separated text (.csv), and HTML (.htm).
