This is not possible with out using webi rich client. WRC only save the .wid file in our local mechine.

Hi BO,

Please share your .wid filename or if you have UID code for the file, share the same with Administrator and ask them to move the file to your folder (Infoview one) along your BO server name.

The .wid file needs to in the file store, only then you'll be able to open it through infoview. Follow the following steps to accomplish this:

Keep the .wid file on your machines' desktop.

Create a new Webi report and save it.

Find out the path of this new document using CMC. - (A)

Copy the name of the .wid file.

Rename the file that you have placed on your desktop with this new file name.

Copy this renamed file and paste it on the path in step (A).

It would prompt you that there exist a file with the same name, hence say yes to replace the file.

Logon to Infoview and open the report you created, it would open up your required .wid file.
