How to export OLI/Analyzer reports to Excel

Jump to: navigation, search

Occasionally a user will need to take the report data in the OLI Analyzers and export it to Excel. The report data is a Rich-Text-Format report so it can be cut and pasted into a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel. This requires some advanced usage of the spreadsheet program to properly format the document.

Alternatively the user can export the report directly to a “Comma Separated Variable” or CSV file. This file is directly readable by most spreadsheet programs.

To start the export you must have a converged case. Click on the Report tab.
