A new workset ‘ZWORKSET_EPDEMO’ is created as shown below.

Open an existing role or create a new role (in this example, workset is added to an existing role).In the screenshot below, an existing role ‘Activite’ is opened and some pre-existing worksets can be seen as subfolders to this role and some pre-existing iViews can be seen as sub folders to these worksets.Icons for the role, workset, iView can be seen under ‘Activite’ role/tab.


Step 12:

Add workset to pre-existing role ‘Activite’ as shown in below screenshot.

‘workset for EP Demo’ is added under ‘Activite’ role. ‘IVIEW for EP Demo’ can also be seen under workset.


Step 13:

In the below screenshot, it can be observed that role ‘activite’ is pre-existing under role ‘Pole A’. Hence the created iView and corresponding workset also become part of role ‘Pole A’.

Note: In this example, two pre-existing role levels are considered, where role ‘Pole A’ is an immediate higher level to the role ‘activite’.


Step 14:

Click on first level role ‘Pole A’ on the right hand side top corner. Then select second level role ‘activite’.

All the worksets and report iViews will be displayed on under detailed navigation. Find the iView you created and double click to display the report results.

Save As, variable selection,Export XLS, Filters and Free characteristics options can be used as and when required.
