We are using a third party CRM System. I have written a BIRT report (using v2.5.2) for this system. With this CRM system I have only an ability to upload the rpt.design into the system. I have completely no idea about the Emitter behind the scence.

I have tested my BIRT report at home. It does work absolutely fine with WORD 2003 or newer. Unfortunately in our company we are still using WORD 2002. And of course, when I tried to export my report on the computer with WORD 2002, it failed.

I understand that BIRT exporter uses XML format which is only available from WORD 2003.
In this case, are there anything I could do with my BIRT report to resolve this problem?

I have read the post message #msg_704132 in this forum. In this message, an open-source emitter was mentioned. Am I right to say, that if a new emitter is required, this emitter should be intergrated with the CRM System which BIRT report runs?

Thanks much in advance.

If a new emitter is required the plugin that implements it will have to
be added to the current BIRT runtime, but if the application is like the
viewer this is a simple copy that does not require that the system be
restarted.
