I am working with infomaker 5.0 and I was making changes to a report.

After previewing it I saved it as a file (PSR).

I then noticed that it is huge?

HOW DO I MAKE IT SMALLER ???

A PSR file is the actual report plus the retrieved data. If you retrieve
e.g. 10000 rows, the PSR file will be huge. The only way to make it
smaller is to retrieve less rows. Be aware that applying a filter will not
reduce the filesize.
