A nice way of making your Web Intelligence Report even more interactive is adding "buttons".

For example we want to have "buttons" for "year" as selection.

It goes like this.

  1. Create report, adding the fields you want

  2. Change the layout of your table, add a second table above your first one and enter only "year" in it, make sure it is a horizontal table

  3. Change your layout of the "year" table: like this

  4. you can go to table-properties: Format Table >> Appearance >> Spacing and Padding >> Set horizontal (and vertical) to like 0.5cm

  5. Create element linkingReport Element >> Linking >> Element

  6. Link the "year"-table (horizontal table) to your "report"(Crosstab)

  7. Et voila, your webi works now interactive via the linking

  8. Now put some make-up on the report.  (adding button image in your "year"cells) and you will have "buttons in your webi report"

  9. Note: the header works as a total selection, all values are selected on click (like the clear in input control), so you can pimp it even some more
