Saving Reports

How you save a report locally depends on whether you have selected a BIRT report template or an Excel or Word template. If you have selected an Excel template, click the Download Excel report template link in the Properties page of the selected report. This will invoke Microsoft Excel on your local computer and the report will be loaded automatically. Likewise, with Word, click Download sample Word report template.
