Chapter 19. Reporting > Running Your Reports

Running Your Reports

Once reports (.cfr files) have been created they must be deployed to the ColdFusion server (just like .cfm and .cfc files). Once deployed, there are two ways to generate reports, direct invocation, and via the <cfreport> tag. The latter is what developers will typically use as it provides far greater control over the report and report data.

Direct Report Invocation

To run your report, simply invoke the full URL to it from within your browser. The report will be displayed, exactly as it was when previewed in the ColdFusion Report Builder. The SQL used will be the default SQL (see the note and tip in Creating A Report above), and the output format will be the default format specified in the report properties.
