Producing tabbed reports in HTML output

Technote (troubleshooting)


You design a report that has several pages, and you want each report page to appear in its own tab in HTML output.

Resolving the problem

In IBM Cognos Business Intelligence, you can specify that each report page appears as a tab in HTML output.

  1. Click File > Report Properties.
  2. Click the View pages as tabs menu and select the location where you want the tabs to appear in browsers.

Report page names are used to name each tab in the output.

The option to show pages as tabs is not supported when a report is used as a report reference in a report booklet. This option is also not supported when a report contains page sets. Page sets are created in a report when you add a page set object, page layers, and page breaks.

In Excel output, each tab becomes a single sheet within the same workbook.
