Refresh a request
You refresh requests after you update them with edits, filters, or you need to view more recent data. You can select several requests in a worksheet and refresh them all at once.
If you increase a request's date range and then refresh the request, report builder adds cells to accommodate the added number of periods.
- Create and run a request.
- After you have changed the request, right-click the request, then choose Refresh Request from the shortcut menu. (Alternatively, click in the request, then click Refresh in the toolbar.)The system displays the Refresh Requests form:Now Date: The date on which you want to base the refresh. Also known as the As Of date.Set to Current date on Future Refresh Actions: Enabling this option tells report builder to always use the current date as the Now (or As Of) date. You can revert this setting by clicking Options in the toolbar.
- Click OK .When a refresh is successful, the system reports this with a green icon on the Request Manager.
