Choose content type (PWA 2010) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I created a new OLAP_PortfolioAnalyser Excel Report. When I tried to save it:

    File / Save & send / Send to SharePoint / Save

    I give it a name but when I click Save I get a dialog box:

    Choose content type:

    • PerformancePoint Data Source
    • ODC file
    • UDC file

    Description: Add a new data source to the document library with Dashboard Designer.

    What is the true question?

    What I have to do ?

    Thanks

  • Basicaly, the library in which you are saving (Data Connections, I think), has the three pre-defined content types you mentione above

    A content type is an object that is stored within SharePoint that defines several elements of a piece of content, including:

    • Document Template that the content will be based on
    • Columns that the content will have associated with it (metadata)
    • Workflows that the content will use
    • Information Management policies that apply to the content
    • Conversion types for the content

    The answer to the questions, depends on WHAT you are tryiong tom save. If it ths actual excel file, you might want to save it outside this library, into a different one.

    If it is a modified data connection, you need to select ODC.
