Formatting in Ms office
« on: 29 Apr 2019 10:57:56 am »
Hi All,

Its there any way to get the same report out put from cognos report to Ms office PPT.

We have question from Developer that when they try to import the report from cognos the formatting not come as per report in cognos.

As per my understanding they have to do the formating whenever the report import from cognos end is it correct ?

Or do we have any option to get the same format in PPT as per report formatin cognos?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Cognos for MS Office is designed to import the report containers from a report (eg charts, crosstabs etc) but doesn't bring in any of the layout (blocks/tables etc). Generally the idea is that a user would be creating a PPT and would utilize various report containers in PPT slides of their own design. In every single instance I can think of, I have always needed to reformat my PPT after importing the required Cognos content.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

MF.
Meep!
