Pinned topic Free active report training material

Active Reports are a great way to archive content for executives and to add interactivity to professionally authored reports.

They're really not that difficult to create but here are some self-study aids that work with the standard Cognos samples. There are 8 files/threads to download.

AR InterToAdvanced 6-27-2012.pptx
AR Training Module 1, 6-27-2012.rar (empty)
AR Training Module 2, 6-27-2012.rar
AR Training Module 3, 6-27-2012.rar
AR Training Module 4, 6-27-2012.rar
AR Training Module 5, 6-27-2012.rar
AR Training Module 6, 6-27-2012.rar
AR Training Module 7, 6-27-2012.rar

    Thanks Winson.

    The pooling of expertise on these forums helps everyone.

    I hope that IBM continues to allow us to make training material available for free.

    Hi Anthony,

    Your samples are very good.

    Can you please explain the drill through between 2 active report sample which you have uploaded. I am not able to follow the properties set in the Application drill through of the chart object. Can you please explain this part.

    Thanks,
    Venu

    Docs (not RAR archives) are going up on ScribD since the uploads are failing here.
    Anthony - You mentioned that the files would be on Scribd, and I found them. However, the XML has been munged with '=' appended at the end of every line to indicate a line break. Since '=' is a valid character in a variety of uses, this makes the documents close to impossible to use without serious editing.

    Will these files be made available on the ibm.com site, as part of Proven Practices or via the KB search or in the SupportLink pages?

    I see the links to uploads in this thread, but it doesn't look like all the files have been uploaded. Or am I just expecting more? ;)

    Thanks,
    Opher
