XLSX Report is a simplification of the Notification report function. Instead of creating trigger-notification objects and report template objects you create a XLSX Report object. The XLSX Template, which contains an XLSX document, is created for you and stored as a sub object of the XLSX report object.

To use the XLSX reports function you need to have MS Excel or similar installed on your computer.

The XLSX report feature support Custom Types.

The XLSX report is a WorkStation feature only.

The XLSX report object

The XLSX Reports object exposes all the report settings, including Trigger and Distribution.

The XLSX template

Defines how the XLSX report is displayed.

XLSX data bindings

XLSX reports data bindings are references to the objects that contains the data. You can have multiple contexts sharing the same data binding if you for example want to have different calculations of the same data.

XLSX reports data bindings are specified in the XLSX template object. The bindings are exposed in the XLSX report object as object paths. The path can be relative or absolute.

XLSX data context and substitution code

The XLSX data context describes the data type. The data context also specifies the properties and columns that are included in the report.

Each data context is represented by a context code, that is, a substitution code, for example <Consumption_Log/>. The substitution code must be copied and pasted into the spreadsheet. The substitution codes for each column are automatically generated by the XLSX report function when the XLSX report is generated or previewed.

  1. In the XLSX Template dialog box, click Temple context .

  4. Click Edit with spreadsheet .
