Report Import Indigo DRS Help

Indigo DRS can import RDL (Report Definition Language) exported by the Export Wizard or saved from the RDL Editor. Exported RDL will be saved with an XML file extension.

Indigo DRS RDL (Report Definition Language) is an XML vocabulary using a flexible machine readable Markup Language to define and describe Report structure, elements, functionality, content and Data. It represents a standard for creating complex and interchangeable Reports between Indigo DRS Systems and also maximises content reuse and modularity.

Report RDL elements that can be imported from RDL elements exported from other Reports structures are:-

  • Report Constants
  • Report Queries
  • Report Rules
  • Report Namespaces
  • Report Data Formats
  • Report Data Contexts
  • Report Expressions
  • Report Resources
  • Report Styles
  • Report Globals
  • Report Running Totals
