About interactive viewing options
When designing a BIRT report, a report developer can provide interactive features in the report to enable end users to navigate report data more easily, and provide quick access to data in lengthy reports. In BIRT Studio, you can use the following interactive viewing features:

For example, you can use a bookmark within a report to enable a user to mark the place of a specific report element such as a chart or section within the report design. Bookmarks used with hyperlinks enable a user to navigate information within a report, or in other reports. You create bookmarks and hyperlinks using Actuate BIRT Studio, and Actuate BIRT Designer Professional. These bookmarks and hyperlinks can be used in BIRT Studio, Actuate BIRT Viewers, BIRT dashboards, and in exported output formats such as PDF or HTML.
When BIRT Studio uses a data object as the data source for a report design, the data object can contain data fields with links to additional information such as subreports, charts, and so on. You can use BIRT Studio to either enable an end user to access these hyperlinks, or disable these hyperlinks.
The following sections describe how you create bookmarks, hyperlinks, and enable or disable default hyperlinks that can be present in BIRT data objects.
