Column Index & Row Index

The two properties together provide a way for you to control the position of an object in the Excel and CSV result of a page report tab or web report.

However, Logi Report has default values for them which are calculated based on the position of each object in the report. You can find the default values of the two properties right after you set the Columned property at the page report tab or web report level to true.

To make the specified values take effect when exporting a page report tab or web report to CSV or Excel, the following is necessary for both export formats:

  • First set the Columned property of the page report tab or web report to true, and then specify values to the two properties of the objects in the report.

More requirements for preview as Excel:

  • Make sure that the Export to Excel property of the objects is set to true.

More requirements for Excel exporting:

  • Make sure that the Export to Excel property of the objects is set to true.
  • When exporting the report to Excel, make sure Column Format is selected in the Export to Excel dialog.

More requirements for CSV exporting:

  • Make sure that the Export to CSV property of the object is set to true.
  • When exporting the report to Text via dialog, do select the Delimited Format option.

Note: Preview as Text cannot support the specified values for the default setting of Delimited Format is unselected and it is unconfigurable.

TOC

Some objects in a report can be set up to show in a table of contents. Then when previewing the report in Logi Report format, exporting it to PDF or HTML format, or running it in Page Report Studio for a page report, you can use the TOC tree to locate the objects.

To show an object in the TOC tree:

  1. Set its TOC Anchor property to true.
  2. Specify the display value for the anchor by setting the Anchor Display Value property.

Logi Report also allows you to specify properties of the TOC tree, including its CSS style, colors and fonts as you want.
