<p>Hi Peter, </p><p>I do not believe (although documentation is scarce as you have found out) you can use style sheets if you are using InfoView. I was able to use them by including them in our custom JSP pages using the LINK tag (we are printing reports using RAS). However, that&#39;s not applicable if you plan on using InfoView.</p><p>For the record though, you cannot really use style sheets if you are using conditional formatting. If you use CSS to control things like font, color, alignment, basic look-and-feel stuff, and your reports are also using conditional formatting values, then any value that triggers the conditional formatting will lose the CSS Class Name, and will look very out of place on the report with the rest of the values in the column. In those cases, you basically have to hard code the font type, font size, alignment, etc into the conditional formatting rule, which completely invalidates the point of using CSS. If you ever want to change FONT-FAMILY from Times New Roman to Arial then you have to change it in the CSS (which is very easy) and then also in every single report that uses conditional formatting (which is very lame). At that point, you&#39;re better off just using a template. </p><p>Does anyone from Business Objects have any suggestions? I think for CSS to be useful you basically need not only to have the ability to conditionally format, but you also need a checkbox for every possible attribute for "overwrite CSS." If the CSS says FONT-COLOR = black but the conditional format says to make all negative values red, you should be able to say "I want negative values red but I want the font and the alignment to match the rest of the report, so use whatever the CSS says." </p><p>Anyway, I hope your experience is better than mine. Definitely reply if you figure out a good way to use style sheets. </p>
