Then report finishes but I have no access to it. I assume it is storing it local to you (company) and not local to me. I cannot find the file, nor does it ever give me the opportunity to name the report file...
Questions: 1) is it possible to print to Word, Excel, txt for Online version users to my local workstation? 2) if yes, what are instructions? I could not find any online.
thanks for your help.
Bring a report up on the screen, then click the Save As button (the floppy disk icon). Choose Excel as the file type.
When browsing to a location to save the file, remember to go to the drives marked "Client". Your C: drive will be mapped to M:\Client C or something similar.
You won't ever be able to access files you save to the C: drive on the server. It needs to be the Client C, which is your local computer.

I am trying to get reports to MY computer, but like the post mentioned above it states: transferring to a local workstation. It does NOT give me the option to browse to select a location. I click the floppy disk icon and it just asks me for the file type, then states "transferring to a local workstation". It doesn't even ask me to name the file or choose a location.

So, I sent an email to the tech staff and they sent me a zip file to run that repaired something in the system to allow the files to save (hooray!) Sounds like it's an issue with 64 bit Windows computers. Their fix worked like a charm!

I have a new laptop and can't find the M:\Client folder. I saw it when I saved the file, it was the only option for saving. But now that I want to retrieve it, I cannot find it. Any ideas?
