Use these options to specify how you want Discoverer to display worksheets.
Run query automatically
Use this option when you want Discoverer to always display up-to-date data in the worksheet.
Note: This option is not available if you are connected as a user that is only able to run scheduled workbooks. For more information, contact the Discoverer manager.
Don't run query (leave sheet empty)
Use this option when you want the Discoverer user to decide when to refresh a worksheet. When a worksheet is first opened, it is empty. Use this option when you want to work on the worksheet without looking at the data. For example, some worksheets users might want to set filtering conditions before opening a large worksheet, or change the layout of a worksheet before analyzing the data.
Ask for confirmation
Use this option when you want workbook users to confirm before worksheets are refreshed with up-to-date data. For example, some worksheets users might want to set filtering conditions before opening a large worksheet.
Use this field to specify the maximum number of workbook names to display in the Recently Used field in the "Workbook Wizard: Create/Open Workbook dialog".
Use this check box when you do not want to be informed about new scheduled workbook results that are available. The "New Scheduled Workbook Results dialog" is not displayed when you start Discoverer.
Use this check box when you do not want to be informed about expired scheduled workbook results and asked whether you want to delete them. The "Delete Scheduled Workbook Results dialog" is not displayed when you close Discoverer.
Use this check box to display or hide graphics on wizard dialogs. Graphics are used as visual aids to choosing options. For example, when choosing between a table and crosstab format, the graphic shows how the data is arranged on the worksheet.
When workbook users are experienced Discoverer users, you might want to improve Discoverer performance by not displaying wizard graphics.
Use this drop down list to choose the measurement unit to use for workbook column width. For example, you can specify the column width in terms of pixels, inches or centimeters.
