I need to create a TOC on a report that will be produced as PDF.
Unfortunately the TOC mechanism in BIRT when exporting to PDF is to add a bookmarks.
However I need to place a report like
Section A........................1
Section B........................4
Section C........................10
on the first page of the report.

I can't find anything on the books regarding this topic. What is the mechanism to do this?

BIRT does not have native support for this but you may want to look at
something like:

Came across this thread looking to add a table of contents to an already existing document created from a template.
Thought I should share how I worked out to do it...

You need to go through your document, starting with the first element to include in your contents. Highlight the heading or whatever you want to appear in the contents list and click "Format" "Create new paragraph style from

selection". Then copy it and find the next heading. alt cmd V will copy the paragraph style (and probably capitalise the text)... continue through the doc. Then you can follow the instructions in this video and the TOC will pick up

your paragraph style. You just need to check it in the inspector and it should create the contents...


I'm new at eclipse
Wanna learn more about dealing with images, barcodes, and documents and OCR.
