TechTip: Build Floating Reports in DB2 Web Query Dashboards

Use this simple method to manage the display size of your reports.

robert_andrewsWritten by Robert Andrews

When you create a dashboard in DB2 Web Query, it often contains a combination of graphs, reports, and, optionally, selection criteria. Because of changing criteria or business loads, the size required to display these reports changes. By default, Web Query uses fixed locations, which means that you need to plan for the largest size to avoid overlap. However, when you have smaller reports, this leads to large sections of undesired white space. In this TechTip, I will explain how to avoid this problem by using floating reports.

Traveling through airports during the holidays always makes me nervous, particularly at the point when I put my laptop in the bin and send it through the X-ray machine. I am equally nervous about putting my wallet and keys in the little plastic dish and sending them on a joy ride past the curtain of rubber strips.

Partner TechTip: Did You Lose Your Report Again?

Online reporting can save you when an end user calls.

tom_huntingtonWritten by Tom Huntington

Do you have thousands of business reports on your output queues? Has a user ever called and asked where his report was? Have you, or has someone on your team, ever deleted a report from an output queue by accident? Did an auditor ever ask you for a report that you could not find in the output queue or the filing cabinet?
