Difference b/w PPR and PPX reports

Difference b/w PPR and PPX reports


     Can anyone help me with the difference between PPR report and PPX report. When I try to host the Powerplay repot into the web it expects a PPX instead of PPR.How do I convert my PPR into PPX. Is it version specific.Kindly Help.

Thnax in Advance,

RE: Difference b/w PPR and PPX reports

ppx is PowerPlay Portable report,
ppr is PowerPlay for Windows Report.
On the web you must use ppx report. In you PowerPlay client where you have created your report, when you save your report you can save it in ppx format ...
hope this help.

Hi Stevev,
    I am unable to save the report in the PPX format. Kindly help.


RE: Difference b/w PPR and PPX reports

Hi, what version of PowerPlay client you have ?

I'm with PowerPlay Client 6.61, I've open a ppr report that I just created and I'm able to select "Save as" option and save it in ppx format...

Do you have any error message ?
