Opening Self-contained Page Reports

When a page report you have selected in the Open Report dialog is a self-contained page report, after you select OK in the Open Report dialog, the Open As dialog will appear, prompting you to specify the way in which you want the page report to be opened.

Open As dialog

  • Open a self-contained page report in current catalog
    Specifies to open the selected self-contained page report in the current catalog and make it work under the current catalog.

    Logi Report Designer will compare the resources in the catalog of the self-contained page report with the current catalog according to the checking level (whether the Check all data match is selected). If conflicts exist between the two catalogs, the page report cannot be opened.

  • Open a self-contained page report directly
    Specifies to open the selected self-contained page report directly to make it work under a new catalog.
  • Open a self-contained page report in another catalog
    Specifies to open the selected self-contained page report in another catalog and make it work under that catalog.

    If this option is selected, you will be prompted to open another existing catalog for the self-contained page report. Logi Report Designer will then compare the resources in the catalog of the self-contained page report with the newly selected catalog according to the checking level (whether the Check all data match is selected). If conflicts exist between the two catalogs, the page report cannot be opened.

  • Check all data match
    This check box is enabled when Open a self-contained page report in current catalog or Open a self-contained page report in another catalog is selected. It is used to specify the checking level between two catalogs.
    • If the option is selected, all the differences between the two catalogs will be selected by Logi Report Designer.
    • If unselected, only the differences that can cause the report engine to fail when running the page report will be checked by Logi Report Designer.
