Using the page feature in PowerPoint reports

This example uses the PowerPoint report created in the previous section to illustrate using the page feature. While the level feature causes cycling of a field on the same page, the page feature causes a separate slide to be created in PowerPoint for each field value. Another difference is that levels can be nested, but you cannot have more than one page per slide.

You can have more than one page field in a presentation, but on separate slides.

Open a PowerPoint report and template

Do the following:

  1. Select Reports in the Qlik NPrinting main menu.
  2. Double-click the PowerPoint Report (Sales) report created in Creating PowerPoint reports.
  3. Click Edit template to open the Template Editor.

Add page field to template

This report contains only one slide, so only that slide can be the active slide. If your report has more than one slide, you must select the slide to be active and be cycled over the Page field before adding the page.

Do the following:

  1. Right-click the Page node, and then select Add page to current sheet.
  2. Select Salesman in the window that opens.
  3. Click Ok.
  4. Drag the Salesman node token into the template, position it appropriately, and then format the slide as desired.
  5. Click on the upper part of the Preview icon.

    Note that there is a labeled slide for each Salesman.

  6. Close PowerPoint without saving the report.
  7. Click Save and Close to save your work in the template.
