How do I configure the Active X portfolio cost views?

This article explains how to configure the Portfolio Cost Views.  This feature is rarely used, and left in the EPM Live product for legacy EPK customers only.

Note: This page requires an Active X control be installed. You should be prompted to download the Active X control when navigating to the Portfolio Cost Views page. If you aren't prompted, contact EPM Live Support for the Active X download. The users who will be viewing the Portfolio Cost Views will also need to download this Active X control.
