    How to change name of custom report




      After creating customized filtered report (SolarWinds Knowledge Base :: Creating a Custom Filtered Report),

      I would like to rename the Report title name in the GUI (Category - Custome reports).


      How can I rename the report ??

          To my knowledge, there isn't a way to change the entry in the Report Title column.  However, you can change the file-name of the Custom Reports and that will appear in the File Name column, so you could call the report something more identifiable there.

            There two ways you can change the title of a custom report:


            1)  Copy the report to a Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 machine.  Then from there, in Windows Explorer, right click the report file and select 'Properties' and go to the 'Summary' tab.  From there, you can modify the Title using the 'Title' property.  You can also change the Category, Level, and Type of the report by editing the 'Subject' field:



            Then, copy your report back to the CustomReports folder wherever you have the LEM Reports installed.  The next time you open LEM reports, it will show the updated information.


            Note that this functionality is no longer available in operating systems based on the Windows Vista or later kernel.


            2) You can also open the report in a full version of Crystal Reports and change the title from there.
