Cope paste table result from SaS VA Viewer.

Hi,

 

I want the users of my VA dashboard to be able to copy a single cell containing a number. The cell is from the table object.

Is this possible in the SaS VA viewer?

 

This is import for us, because our users need to copy and paste a long number into our ERP system.

Oke! I found the solution for this!

 

Simply use a cross table instead of a list. There I can click a cell and then use select/copy/paste.

 

This will do just fine.

Re: Cope paste table result from SaS VA Viewer.

Hi Wienik,

 

I tried a couple different ways and there does not appear to be a simple way to click and copy, but there is a work around (actually two).

 

The first option is for the user that is viewing the report to RIGHT click on the table, graph, or other object.  You can then export to excel and the user could just copy from there.

 

The other option is to RIGHT click on the object and click print to PDF.  Once the user clicks print from the menu that appears it actually opens in a browser that will let you select one or multiple cells.  The selection seems a little off, but if it is just one cell it is easy enough.  Iused ctrl+c to copy and then ctrl+v to paste and it pasted it OK.

 

Hope this helps, I know it is not exactly what you were looking for.

Hi Mike,

 

Thanks for trying.

 

It is not what I'm looking for. The people that are going to access the report need to obtain the result fast and will need to use the functionality a lot.
