XML Option Dialog Box
The XML Option dialog box helps you to predefine the options for directly running a report in XML on Server. It appears when you set the Default Format for Viewing Report property of a report tab or a web report to "XML" and then select the ellipsis button in the value cell in the Report Inspector.
The following are details about options in the dialog box:
- If the option is selected, the XML output will only contain the database column information. The exported XML schema file will only contain the structure information of the report.
- If unselected, the XML output will also contain elements controlled by formulas, and the exported XML schema file will contain all the detailed information from the report, including all the property values of each report object.
Run Linked Report
If the report is linked with other reports, you can check whether or not to generate the linked reports (not including the detail reports) in the XML output. If you are only interested in the primary report, leave this option unselected. Generating linked reports at the same time, especially when the linked reports contain a large amount of data, will cause performance issue.
