Hi there!
I have a doubt about buttons on an Active report.
The issue is to create an index that can jump through buttons to parts of the report or jump to other pages, to display that information.
Is this possible in cognos analytics?

Ex:

INDEX
1. Introduction  -> Button or similar to jump to part of this report or maybe another page that is the Information..
  1.1 Types  -> The same respect the above example...
  1.2 Variables
2. Examples
  2.1 General projects
.......

Thanks a lot

Regards

Hi,

The answer is yes, but not quite in the way you described things here. One important thing to know about an Active Report is that only the first report page gets rendered. Although the Reporting UI allows you to add multiple pages, there is no point doing this in an Active Report.
The way to go here is to use a Deck. This can have multiple cards, and each card can look and behave like a separate page in a report. The deck exists on the one (and only) report page, along with buttons or other controls that allow a user to navigate to a specific card in the deck. In your case, a Static Repeater Table could be used to create the different levels of the "index".

Cheers!

MF.
Meep!
