Report Designer


The Report Designer allows you to create folders and files, as well as run the Jedox Spreadsheet program with previously created files.

The workbooks are stored in the Report Designer. With Jedox Setup you get the following structure:

Folder group: Default
Root Folder: Public Files


Folder group: Demo Spreadsheets
Root Folder: Demos

To store files you need at least one folder group and in each folder group at least one root folder.

In a root folder you can store spreadsheets, framesets, or other folders that includes spreadsheets and so on.
To create a new folder group you can use the wheel next to the selection box and add a name:

With the same wheel you can also add a new root folder afterwards.
Use the button “New” in Report Designer to add files afterwards. You can also import prepared files from Excel or another Jedox Web Server. Please find further information about that procedure in the corresponding article.

Every root folder is physically created on the server’s hard drive; you can specify its location during creation, and later change it. Should you change the location of a root folder, its contents will be moved to the new location on the server. Workbooks created with Jedox Web have the file extension .wss.

The default location path that is suggested when creating new root folders can be changed in section “Settings” of Jedox Web Administration.

Note: You can only copy and paste folders and files within the same root folder. To copy files in other root folders, they must be exported as a wss-file and reimported into the desired root folder.

Important: Objects deleted in Report Designer are irretrievable.
