    You use PowerPlay Studio to create and view reports that are based on multidimensional data sources. You can use IBMCognos Connection to work with entries such as reports,analyses, queries,agents,metrics,and packages. You can also use it to create and run agents and schedule entries. To create a new report,you open a package in PowerPlay Studio,select the data and format for the report,and then save the report to IBMCognos Connection. You can change the report properties so the default action is to open the report in PDF format in a Report Viewer. Regardless of the default action setting,a report consumer can choose to open the report in either PDF format or interactive format. However,if you access IBMCognos Connection without providing authentication information and then attempt to open a secured packaged,IBMCognos 8 will prompt you for credentials. In IBMCognos 8,report authors access data sources,including cubes,through packages. First,an IBMCognos 8 adminis- trator creates a data source connection to the cube. A modeler can create a business presentation of the data source using Framework Manager,the IBMCognos 8 metadata modeling tool. The modeler publishes packages fromthe model to make the data available to report authors. Optionally, for PowerCube data sources,the administrator can choose to automatically generate a package when they create the data source connection,eliminating the need to create the package in Framework Manager. You can not configure PowerPlay Studio to open in a new window.

    One thing that we have run into that problematic is related to parameter specifically dates passing between portlets. For a typical 6 up dashboard report, you would likely build 6 separate reports or more if you like the library approach mentioned above and a 1 filter or control report.

    Dashboard Go! Dashboard was introduced in late and begins the process of moving Cognos into the Web 2. Dashboard delivers dynamic and customizable dashboarding capabilities that enable end users to quickly create and personalize their dashboard from trusted Cognos assets with drag-and-drop ease.

    GoDash furthers the Author once consume anywhere philosophy.

    While we believe that GoDash is a step in the right direction, we would issue caution to widespread adoption. We would recccomend waiting until you upgrade to Cognos 10 before taking advantage of this capability.

    Else the format result will be a number. Rounding values will result in as many decimal places as the rounding precision. PDFs can now be paginated horizontally as well as vertically.
