|Issue:||Report Drill-down in Distributed and Exported Reports.|
|Product:||Pearl Echo 8|
|Applies to:||All Builds|
Background:The Pearl Echo Report Manager allows you to save reports in a wide variety of file formats including Crystal Reports format for interactive reporting and drill down. Files saved in the Crystal Reports .RPT format require a viewer application in order to be opened.
Solution:.RPT files can be opened with a licensed copy of Crystal reports. In addition, Crystal/SAP provides a free viewer download: http://www.sap.com/solutions/sapbusinessobjects/sme/reporting-dashboarding/reporting/viewer/index.epx
For instances where report recipients do not have a Crystal Report viewer, you can specify that all data visible in the drill down pages of the report be visible on the top summary pages. You can accomplish this by selecting “Include details from drill down pages with top summary report” in the Display Options tab found under Advanced Settings in the Report Manager.
