MicroStrategy - Refreshing Reports

The reports created in MicroStrategy Servers are accessed by the users repeatedly to find the new results from the additional data gathered in the report source. Hence, the data in the report needs to be refreshed both periodically as well as on demand by the user.

The reports in MicroStrategy desktop version can be refreshed by simply reporting the data again. This is done by using the refresh button available in the menu.
