    ActiveReports supports a number of features like parameters, filters, drill-down, links, document map and sorting to provide reports with interactive capabilities.

    ActiveReports supports features like parameters, filters, drill-down, links, document map and sorting to provide an interactive look to your report at run time.


    ActiveReports allows you to set parameters in your report to filter the data displayed. Parameters make navigation of the report easier for the user at run time. See Parameters for further details.

    Drill-Down Links

    When you open a report with drill-down features, part of the data is hidden so that you only see high-level data until you request more detail. See Drill-Down Links for more information. 

    Bookmark, Hyperlinks, and Drill-Through Links

    Bookmark Links

    When you click a bookmark link, the viewer navigates to a bookmarked item within the current report.

    See Bookmarks for further details.


    When you click a hyperlink, your machine's default internet browser opens to display a Web page.

    See Hyperlinks for further details.


    Using the drill-through link feature in your report you can navigate to another report for details about the item you clicked.

    See Drill-Through Links for further details.


    The sorting feature allows you to organize your data and present it in a logical order at run-time. Using this feature you can sort the data alphabetically or numerically in ascending or descending order. See Sort Data for further details.

    Note: You cannot use the interactive features in the following cases:
    • With Adobe Acrobat Reader and RawHTML types of the WebViewer.
    • With reports that use the collation feature, i.e. reports that have two or more themes.

    Document Map

    The Document Map (Table of Contents) feature allows you to navigate to a particular item in a report. See Document Map for further details.
