In MicroStrategy Web, you can view documents in a partially interactive format (Express Mode), an interactive DHTML format (Interactive Mode), in a fully editable DHTML format (Editable Mode), or in a fully dynamic Flash Mode MicroStrategy, Inc. Document Display Modes and Export Formats 31
32 1 Introduction to Report Services MicroStrategy Report Services: Document Essentials Express Mode This display mode is the recommended display mode for viewing a document. Even though Express Mode is less interactive than other modes, you can still perform several manipulations on documents such as sorting, pivoting and drilling on grid/graphs, using selectors to change panels or grid/graph reports, linking to reports and documents, saving, printing, exporting, and using the Grouping panel. For more information on panel stacks and selectors, refer to the MicroStrategy Report Services: Dynamic Dashboards course. Express Mode reduces the size of the HTML output, which in turn optimizes the performance of document execution. The image below displays a document in Express Mode. The sorting and pivoting options are displayed when you click on the down arrow next to the subcategory header. Notice that there are no menus displayed and limited toolbar options are available: Express Mode Express Mode is supported on Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 (and higher) and Firefox 3.0 (and higher).

OR On the Home toolbar, click Design: Export to PDF Adobe Acrobat Reader version 5.0 or higher is required to view PDF output. When MicroStrategy Desktop users execute a document, the output automatically renders in PDF format in Adobe Acrobat Reader. In MicroStrategy Web, users export documents to PDF. The PDF output displays a document as it will look when printed (with page breaks, pagination, and so forth). When you execute a Report Services document in MicroStrategy Desktop, the MicroStrategy Desktop machine generates the PDF output. On the other hand, when you execute a document in MicroStrategy Web, the Intelligence Server machine generates the PDF output. This is one key difference between PDF generation in Desktop versus MicroStrategy Web. To view a document in PDF in MicroStrategy Web, do one of the following: 1 Run the desired document. 2 On the Home menu, point to Export, and select PDF. OR On the Home toolbar, click PDF. The document designer must enable PDF as an available export mode for users to see the PDF options as described in the above procedures. OR 2011 MicroStrategy, Inc. Document Display Modes and Export Formats 37
38 1 Introduction to Report Services MicroStrategy Report Services: Document Essentials Locate the desired document and click the PDF link that displays under the document name. Export to Microsoft Excel When you export to Microsoft Excel, you send the document data to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, retaining the data and the formatting. In fact, a document's appearance largely remains the same whether you view it in PDF, Microsoft Excel, or in the MicroStrategy Web DHTML modes. Graphs that export to Microsoft Excel get exported as Microsoft Excel graphs, not as images. As a result, you can perform manipulations on these graphs in the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, using Microsoft Excel functionality. You can select the Excel format for export (that is, Excel 2003, 2007, and so on) from Preferences. To select the Export Excel Format for Documents: 1 At the top of the project home page, click Preferences. 2 On the left-pane, under Preferences Level, select User Preferences. 3 On the left-pane, under Preferences, select Export Reports. 4 Under Excel options, from the Excel version drop-down list, select the desired Excel format. 5 Click Apply. Selecting Available Display Modes By altering the Document Properties, you can specify which display modes are available for your documents as well as which display mode is the default display mode. 38 Document Display Modes and Export Formats 2011 MicroStrategy, Inc.
39 MicroStrategy Report Services: Document Essentials Introduction to Report Services 1 To specify available display modes and the default display mode for documents: 1 Open the document in Design or Editable Mode. 2 On the Tools menu, select Document Properties. 3 In the Properties window, on the left panel, under Document Properties, select Document. 4 Under Run Modes, under Available Display Modes, select the check boxes for each mode in which this document should display. Clear the check box for any mode that should not be available. 5 In the Run by default as drop-down list, select the desired default display mode. 6 Click OK to return to the document. When you view a document in any of the DHTML modes (Express, Interactive, or Editable), it looks the same as if you were viewing it in PDF. However, the DHTML modes display the content of a document continuously, with no section or page breaks. Therefore, all pagination-related settings apply only to the PDF. Selecting Available Export Formats Before you can export a document, you need to enable the available export formats. To specify the available export formats for a document: 1 Open the document in Design or Editable Mode. 2 On the Tools menu, select Document Properties MicroStrategy, Inc.

For information on Flash documents and MHT/PDF Flash files, refer to the MicroStrategy Report Services: Dynamic Dashboards course or the Report Services Document Creation Guide product manual. Accessing Links to Reports and Documents In MicroStrategy Web, you can view the link to a report or a document,which gives you quick access to the URL that runs the selected report or document. To access links for reports and documents: 1 In MicroStrategy Web, browse to the specific report or document. 2 Right-click the report or document and select Show Link. The Show Link window opens and allows quick access to a URL that runs the selected report or document. 3 Using the Advanced Options, you can customize the size of the iframe and the other sections, such as header, navigation bar, toolbar, tools panel and footer. 40 Document Display Modes and Export Formats 2011 MicroStrategy, Inc.
