Creating a bookmark
When defining a bookmark, you specify a name that determines how BIRT Studio generates the bookmark. To create a bookmark for use in all supported BIRT applications, the bookmark name must begin with a letter ([A-Za-z]) and may be followed by any number of letters, digits ([0-9]), hyphens ("-"), underscores ("_"), colons (":"), and periods ("."). Do not enclose the name in single or double quotation marks, or use spaces or the percent symbol ("%") in the name. The letters in the name are case-sensitive. When naming a bookmark, provide a name representative of the report element being bookmarked, such as CrossTab, SummaryTable, Chart, and so on.

The report elements for which you define bookmarks in BIRT Studio can be displayed in BIRT dashboards using a Reportlet gadget. A bookmark created at the report section level can be accessed in a report document file by BIRT dashboards. For more information, see Building BIRT Dashboards.
