Configure the Report Set

After you have created and saved the workspaces within your report set folder, you must create a new Report.cfg file.

You must specify in the Report.cfg file for the report set when and how the reports are to be generated and distributed.

To create a new Report.cfg

  1. In data workbench, open the Profile Manager by right-clicking within a workspace and clicking Admin > Profile > Profile Manager.

  2. Click Reports to open the Reports folder.

  3. Click the folder for your report set.

  4. In the User column for your report set folder, right-click and select Create > Report. A new Report.cfg file appears in the Filecolumn.

  5. In the User column for the new Report.cfg file, right-click the check mark for the Report.cfg file, then click Open > from the workbench.

  7. Save the file by right-clicking Report.cfg (modified) at the top of the file and clicking Save as Reports*< ReportSetName>* \Report.cfg.

  8. Close the file.

  9. In the Profile Manager, right-click the check mark in the User column for the new Report.cfg file and select Save to*< profile name>*.
