I created Global Variables using Report Designer, when I use the preview option the values assigned to the variables after some calculations during rendering appear correctly.

However when I upload the rptdesign file Web viewer the result is different the default value which was assigned when the variable was created appears.

Is there any configuration I have to do on the Web viewer?

As you describe the problem it looks like you assign values for your global variables in "onRender" events, or they are used by javascript expressions declared in render events.
To confirm this, in the URL of the WebViewer replace "frameset" or "run" with "preview". For example if your report call is:


Try this:


It should work with the second URL, let me know. Using "onRender" events requires a good understanding of the general generation process of a BIRT report, in particular the difference between a runAndRender task (used for preview) and a run "and then render" task.
