Exporting from the Board Client

Exporting from the Board Client

From Board Client it is possible to export data represented on a Capsule screen to different formats.

Export to Microsoft Office

It is possible to export data to the following Microsoft Office formats:

 

The export function creates a document in the specified format, with the data and the charts of the Capsule screen. When exporting to a MS-Excel 2007, PowerPoint 2007 or Word 2007 (or later) format, not only data and is exported but also the Layout definitions, which allows to then use the Board Office Add-In to work on that data. For example it is possible to refresh the reports, or drill-down or even modify their Layouts from within the MS-Office program.

 

Note

To enable the export icons, to Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft Word, it is required that MS-Office version 2003 or later is installed on the client PC.

Exporting to RTF format (Rich Text Format) generates a text document which is compatible with almost any text editor program.

 

Note

The export to RTF format is always available, even if MS-Office is not installed, it doesn't require any third party software to be installed on the client PC. However reports exported to RTF format can't be refreshed,
