Exporting Reports

If you want to copy reports from one template set to another, then you export them into a file, that can be imported into another template set.

Note: The schema of the exporting and the importing template set must be compatible. If they are not identical, ReportWeaver will automatically evolve the imported reports to the new schema.

To export, select export templates... from the file menu. This pops up the export wizard:

Importing Reports

To import, select import templates... from the file menu. This pops up the file chooser, were you can select the file to import.

Note:If the imported templates use named styles which already exist in the importing template set, then the imported styles will be overridden by the existing styles. Named styles that do not exist in the importing template set, will be added.

Exporting/Importing Styles

To export, select export styles... from the file menu. This pops up the file chooser to select a file were all named styles will be stored.

To import, select import styles... from the file menu. This pops up the file chooser, were you can select the file to import. In this case imported named styles will override existing styles.
