Jasper Ideas

Today I ran into some challenges with reports that are exported into Microsoft Word. It’s really difficult to update them in Word, specifically when tables are used in complex reports. In short: The word document does not display the tables nicely, it just displays a collection of text boxes (not 100% of the time, but often). Is this something that has will be improved in a future release? Resolution Summary: Auto-Closed Case - This may be due to a limitation of exporting specifically to Word and how it processes the report. However, you can file an enhancement request for enhanced features.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We will look into it as a future requirement. On average, how many columns would you say you expect to see? This will help me to test it out. Does a PDF export do the job temporarily, or do you need to edit the data in word?
