The Save Multiple Reports option only works with Text reports. From the Solution description:

to another program. Selected reports need to concatenated together 
("stacked") and in user determined order. 

You select multiple reports from your report list, then click the Save button/icon. The "Save Multiple Reports" dialogue opens and you may reorder the reports to be saved in the "Reports to be Saved" area, selecting and promoting/demoting that selection. In the "Concatenated File Name" area, you may accept the default or change it to whatever file name you'd like. Click the OK button to execute. 

 

Additional Information

The multiple file Save/Email option is NOT available to the EXPORT capability. The reason is that Export rules are not applicable to any report save the one for which they were created.
