Saving the report to local computer?
« on: August 08, 2014, 03:20:13 AM »
Is there a way to save cognos report... you know the design/layout to local computer?

I dont see any option to save the report ... just the save and save as options.

Any idea?

there's an option in cognos report studio. But you need to Click Tools and select Options. Check the Allow local file access checkbox and click OK. Now, the File menu lists Local Open, and Local Save As for menu item options.

You need to register LFA.dll first before you will see this option...

Steps
1. Obtain the LFA.dll from your Cognos 8 administrator
The DLL is located in the bin directory where Cognos 8 is installed
2. Open a command prompt window
3. Register the LFA.dll file by typing regsvr32 LFA.dll
4. In Internet Explorer, set your computer and the Cognos 8 server as
trusted sites:
• From the Tools menu, click Internet Options
• On the Security tab, click Trusted sites
• Click the Sites button
• In the Add this Web site to the zone box, type http://localhost and click
Add.
Tip: If the Cognos 8 server is not on the same computer as the browser, type
http:// instead.
• Repeat the above step for http://
• Clear the Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this
zone check
box
• Click OK twice
5. In Report Studio, from the Tools menu, click Options
6. Select the Allow local file access check box and click OK
The menu items (Local) Open and (Local) Save As appear in the File menu
7. Close and restart Report Studio

Im trying to do this in Cognos 10.2 version, but can't figure out what's wrong. Is this feature enabled in Cognos 10.2?
