How to Update a NetSuite Excel Web Query File for a Report

  1. Determining the Original Report

    2. Click “Reports”, then “Reports Overview” and click on any report to open.
    3. Edit the web page address by including the .iqy file’s report ID in the cr attribute, then hit “Enter”.
    4. The original report for the .iqy should now be visible.
  2. Exporting the .iqy File
    1. In the report footer, click the “Export to Excel Web Query” icon. If you do not see this icon, click “Customize”, then “Allow Web Query” in the “More Options” tab, then “Save”.
    2. The report will download as an .iqy file.
