External Reports

External reports enable you to specify any URL and store it as a report. For example, you can specify a URL for a report created in an external reporting tool, such as Crystal Reports. This external report can then be combined with other Crystal Reports or SBM reports in a Multi-View report.
Note: Because External reports are not tied to a single application, they are stored in a separate folder in the Browse Reports area of the navigation pane. All External reports you have privileges to access are available in this folder.


External reports display the Web page for the URL specified on the External report form. Depending on the size of the Web page, you may need to scroll to view its entire contents.
