I am trying to see how feasible it is to use external css file to apply styles in report studio. The reason I am not trying to customize GlobalReportStyles_10.css is because of the upgrade impact and you also need to keep several copies of this css file in sync. So, if I could use my own css file located in a folder, let's say, ../mycss/mystyle.css
In Report studio, I can have an HTML tag that will refer this mystyle.css as show below:
<link type="text/css" href=" ../mycss/mystyle.css" rel="Stylesheet" />
It works for HTML output but when I run for PDF/Excel output, the default Cognos CSS styles are applied. I even tried putting mystyle.css file under ../bin directory and restarting both web serer and Cognos server.
Has any of you been able to use external css files in Report Studio sucessfully for all html, pdf and excel report output?
Any help will be will appreciated.
