You can play around with the formatting options of rows and columns...

... but in the end, a cube view is just a table and will always be a table. If you need more control on the overall layout, you'll have to look into the Report Component, which you can create under Dashboards (create a Maintenance unit, select Components, click Create Component and select Report).

@JackLacava  I have tried creating a dashboard -> reports -> using Cube view as a data adapter.

Once you import the cube view layout , it looks something like this in the designer page. I want to add a text box on the right side of the page so that it stretches all down the rows .

Not working

This used to be easier with wizards in the old Reporting Studio, it seems a bit harder now - I tried but couldn't achieve it...

My two suggestions are:

  • Design an actual Dashboard, where you can use the Table layout type to have labels besides a whole Cube View; you can then export that Dashboard to PDF.
  • Contact Support and ask them how they'd solve it 😅

Sorry!

I was thinking can we achieve this by creating a xfdoc and placing cubeview on the left side and the comment box on the right side.

 

I think that might be an option, but I'm not terribly familiar with the extensible docs.

Thank You for all your help. I will let you know how i ended up creating it.
