Error description

  • Through testing various options within CAFE for report
    refreshing, the majority of methods to refresh data (e.g.
    "Refresh Data" and "Refresh All Data") return data in a short
    time (2 minutes, based on test case provided) whereas "Refresh
    Data and Formatting" takes a very large amount of time (~25
    minutes with the same test case).??According to the client, this
    has not always been the case.

Temporary fix

Comments

  • Importing a report takes longer because both data and format hav
    e to be rendered. Rendering the format takes much longer than re
    ndering the data and this is a limitation with Excel. This is wh
    y there are two ways to refresh the report. Refresh data is the
    recommended way to refresh because it is much faster than refres
    h with format. Refresh with format is necessary only when the fo
    rmat of the report is changed.
