Hello
My boss wants a Workitem Birt Report but it's to big. He doesn't want a preview in HTML but pressing the link and exporting directly to excel. Does anybody have any ideas to do this?

Best regards
Boris

RRDI might be a better solution for this particular use case.  You could use Cognos capability to schedule and deliver an excel report directly to your boss.
