    4. 4. Active Reports• Are high-performance, interactive, stand-alone reports• Enable users to interact with information when offline• Can be highly formatted and “burst” to deliver personalized data for each user• Are authored in Report Studio
    5. 5. Active Reports• Active reports are an extension of existing Report Studio values and the IBM Cognos platform.• Users will continue to benefit from the enterprise value of one version of the truth.• New interactive control types in Report Studio will serve as building blocks for creating active reports.
    6. 6. Active Reports• What is an Active Report?  An Active Report is a Report Studio report type that has an output as an MHT file.  The MHT file output allows consumers the flexibility of being able to run reports while disconnected from the database.
    7. 7. Active Reports• MHT files contain all of the report data within the single file, so a consumer does not need to access the database to interact with a report.• Consumers are able to explore the report by resubmitting different prompt values and rendering new data output.
    8. 8. Active Reports• Because the information is in the MHT file at the time the report is created, when prompts are re-submitted the data is rendered without having to go back and access the database.• An Active report can be generated in IBM Cognos Connection as a HTML or MHT file and saved locally with a static copy of the data.
    9. 9. Active Reports• This file is viewable in a web browser independent of the IBM Cognos report server.• Active reports are built for business users, allowing them to explore their data and derive additional insight.
    10. 10. Active Reports created within Report Studio• Active Report Controls  When an active report is created, there are two types of controls available for use in the mht file format: ► Static: Allows you to manually define variables ► Data driven: Have values that are determined by the associated data item.• There are many available tools for active report controls. These controls are found in the toolbox tab, and the list found in the toolbox tab can be lengthy.
    11. 11. Active Reports created within Report Studio• To make it easier to locate those associated with Active Reports, you can right-click in the toolbox tab and click Active Report Toolbox Items to filter the list of objects that are applicable.
    12. 12. Active Reports created within Report StudioActive Report variables work withthe controls to add interactivity andto control behavior in reports.
    13. 13. Active Reports• You are able to specify a control’s selection behavior or reaction behavior.• Selection Behavior: When selecting one control, the value of the active report variable is set to the control selection value.• Reaction Behavior: When selecting one control, the active report variable specifies how another control will react.• There are three types of Reaction Behavior:  Select an item in a control  Filter an item in a control  Enable a control
