Export of report does not include filter values

When I export a report that has filters applied, the values of the filters are not included in the export file.

If you run the same report for different filters is it helpful to have the filter values in the export. Is there a way to do this?

Hi Gerri,

Thanks for getting in touch. Are you saying that the export does not have the same result as the report within yellowfin or that the actual filter values are not showing in the export so you can't tell what filters were applied?

If it's the latter, then in the Report / Filter Formatting / Display Filter Values / [Top/Bottom] should achieve what you want.

i.e.


b73f7ff8501396be726bce9147b86e43would result in my pdf test as

223b8642efd67948d231bc119cf5cb12or in xlsxf68ff1aae1222794a7e4e725836959af

If it's the former, then this should be working fine and might be an issue somewhere but please let me know if the above helps first.

Thanks,

Paul

Thanks Paul - it is the latter.

Is there an option to show just the user selected filters? We have some preset filters in the report that the Users never see, so it looks odd to have them included in the export of the report at runtime

Hi Gerri,

Unfortunately the only option is basically an all or nothing approach in this case. Perhaps you could raise an idea for this and we can put it to the Dev team for consideration?

Thanks.

Hi Gerri,

This has now been raised on your behalf and you should see the idea in your list. If there is any movement on this I will let you know accordingly.

Please let me know if you need anything else or happy to close this off?
