Cannot Save Active Report Cognos 10.2.2 as MHT
« on: 28 Jun 2016 11:05:54 am »
The previous version of Cognos 10.1.1  would save an active report to a local MHT file when run.  We use these files to upload to SharePoint and then send users emails with links to the file for report access. The new version has the new "Live Preview" feature for active reports and when run renders the report to an html page in the browser.  I do not see an option or a way to run this report to save as an MHT file.  I tried to use the File>Save As (Web Archive) MHT file but when I try to open the save file it just sits there in the browser showing a "loading..." message but never opens the file.  I was able to use the Run->Download Active Report option from within Report Designer to run and have the report save to MHT and it look/opened OK.
Any ideas and help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
Donna

Hi,

If you are in Preview mode in Report Studio, just go to Run > Download Active Report from the menubar. Alternatively, if you are in Cognos Connection, use the Run with Options icon alongside the report, select "Save the report", wait for the mht to be rendered and refresh the page, then use the "View the Output Versions for this report" icon then press the Download link on the right.

Cheers!

MF.
Meep!

Hi MF.
Thanks for your reply.
My requirement is to make MHT file download available  to the users.They do not have access to cognos connection. they run cognos reports through Openpages allocation.
I wanted the mht file to be downloaded once we hit on the run button in cognos connection as it was in Cognos 10.1.
Kindly advice.. many thanks for your helping..

IBM changed the way things work between 10.1 and 10.2.2. In 10.1 they relied on the browser to unpack and render an MHT file, but this meant you could be using a supported browser such as Chrome and not be able to consume active reports, since Chrome doesn't support MHT rendering. For 10.2.2, IBM changed things so that the Cognos server unpacks rendered MHT outputs and presents them as regular HTML to the browser. This isn't something you have control over - it's the way they have designed the product to work. They did this so that active report output could be consumed in all supported browsers, regardless of whether they support MHT rendering.

The bottom line is this is just how it works in 10.2.2. Sorry.

Cheers!
