You Asked

We are using APEX 22.2.0.

I have an interactive report on a page. I have added a logo to the page. I want the logo to display on the report when the user selects the "Download" option from the Actions menu. How can I get the logo to download with the rest of the report?

and Chris said...

The download option is for the contents of the report itself. I'm guessing the logo appears elsewhere on the page.

There are more advanced options defining report downloads, as discussed here:

I'm not sure if the cover adding images though.

You are correct that my logo appears on the header of the page. Is there a way that I can generate my logo into the header of the report such that it will appear in the downloaded version of the report?

Follow these procedures to add a logo to a report when downloading it in APEX 22.2:

In your APEX application, save the logo as a static file.

Go to the "Actions" option after editing the Interactive Report area.

Choose "Download" from the list of available actions.

Go down to the "Appearance" area in the "Download Settings" window.

Add the following code to the "Pre-header HTML" section:

<img src="f?p=&APP_ID.:YOUR_LOGO_FILE" style="float:left; margin-right:10px;" />

"YOUR LOGO FILE" should be replaced with the name of the file you submitted in step 1.

The logo picture will be added to the left side of the downloaded report using this code.

To preserve the modifications to the Interactive Report area, click "Apply Changes."

When the user picks the "Download" option from the Actions menu, the report with the logo is downloaded.

I am unable to upload images, so I will try to describe what I see. I open the APEX developer tool and open the page with the interactive report. I click on the interactive report region. On the right, I have 3 options:

I click on "Attributes". I scroll down to the "Actions Menu" section and I see that "Download" is selected. I scroll down further to the "Download" section, but I don't see an option for "Appearance" or "Pre-header HTML". What am I missing?

I'm anxiously awaiting an update.
