Bursting a report

These steps are required to burst a report, Crystal, Lawson, or test-based:

  • Select a report to burst
  • Publish the report
  • Create elements
  • Create structures
  • Add elements to the structure
  • Assign rights
  • Burst and view the report

These conditions apply to burst text based reports:

  • The report must have <LAW> tags embedded.
  • The document must be well-formed. That is, the tag structure in the file must conform to XML syntax structure.

You can use Import as Instance to automate importing text-based report instances into Reporting Services.
