Export Co-Display Report as PDF

Hi

We recently upgraded our Yellowfin to 7.1 (build 20141223). However, we are unable to export a Co-Display report (with no drill-through - 5 tabular reports) as PDF. Every other format (CSV, DOC etc) works as expected.

When clicking on the export button no action/message is taken/shown.

Thanks
Hi Stelios,

I'm sorry to hear you are running into trouble while exporting your Co-Display report to PDF. I think I may have replicated your issue. I created a 5 tab, Co-Display Report the way you described on the 20141223 build of Yellowfin. When exporting, I noticed that if the 'Export Tabbed Co-Display' slider is set to off, nothing will export.

If you set the slider to On, the report will export as expected.

I tested this in the newest version of Yellowfin 7.1 and I didn't encounter this issue. The slider functioned as expected.

To fix this I recommend upgrading to the most recent version of Yellowfin 7.1:

As always, please ensure your database is backed up before upgrading! Hopefully this information helps. If it doesn't please let me know.

Hi Dustin

I am unable to find the slider that you mentioned above.

I haven't created Tabbed Co-Display. I have dragged my reports into Co-Display Bottom so they appear one below the other and I still cannot export as PDF.

Can you reproduce that?

Hi Stelios,

I apologize for not being clear regarding the slider. I was referring to this:

However, when I tried again today, I was unable to export the report to PDF using the 20141223 build regardless of how the 'Export Tabbed Co-Display' slider was set so it appears I may have misspoke. I can also confirm that I couldn't export if Bottom Co-Display was configured.

With all that being said, the 20150123 build fixes these issues, and export to PDF functions as expected.

I recommend upgrading to the most recent version of 7.1 to resolve this issue:

Build 20150227

I've attached a link to our wiki that covers upgrade recommendations:
