Report Freeze

Freeze Column headers in OBIEE 11g(

We have a new feature in OBIEE that freezes the data column header. So when a user scrolls down to the bottom of the report, the column header stays in place and only the data rows move. This is similar to the ‘Freeze Panes’ option in MS Excel.
By default this Freeze option is not enabled. We need to turn ON by adding set of attributes in  instanceconfig.xml file under <Views> element, between <GridView>… </GridView> class.
To do this..
Navigate to the path “<MiddlewareHome>\instances\instance2\config\OracleBIPresentationServicesComponent\coreapplication_obips1″ and open instanceconfig.xml file  and add the below entry between <Views> and </Views> tag
The entry in instanceconfig.xml should looks as below screenshot.

Note: Here I am enabling the Column Header freeze option with the Scroll bar if my request contains more than 200 records.
E.g. in Table view and Pivot view

I configured for 200 rows, So..what happens if the record count increases after 200 records?
We can click on “Get more rows” to get more rows as shown in below screen.
