Reports are generated with the current selections still active.
You can configure a report to clear all selections every time before building the current instance.
Of course, section access still applies to the data in the report. You may be able to see all dimension values, but someone else may not. There is not much that can be done about that.
Thank you, Peter
However, table expressions in this report use set analysis in order to filter the data. Thus, I do not make any selection to get the desired data into the table.
The other table that I placed in the multi-sheet area has a similar structure and is also based on set analysis, but it appears similar in both the qvw dashboard and pdf report.
It is still not clear to me why the table are different.
