Hi,

We often make some changes to our rptdesign files and in this process observed that the file are getting corrupted. By corrupted i meant that, the changes we make are not getting reflected and the reports are not working as expected.

For ex: we display a report with all the cardholders and their transactions, we observed that after running the report for n number of times and making some changes to meet some business requirements, the rptdesign is corrupted and the column that displays cardholder names , is displaying only one name thru out the report in-spite of no logical error.

We had to redo the report to work as expected.

Is there any limitation on the number of time we generate reports using a rptdesign file.?Does rptdesign gets obsolete using it regularly.

FYI
We are using Birt3.7 version
App server:Web logic 10 in linux.
Jdk:1.5
Db:Oracle


Any help regarding this is appreciated.

Thanks,
KKP

No there is no limit. Does the report use parameters to cull the data?

Jason,

We don't filter on the data, all the data from query is taken as it is.So do you see any issue with report getting damaged or corrupted.

Thanks,
KKP

I have never seen one get corrupted in the scenario you describe. Is a
rptconfig file for the report being created in the designer? You could
try to delete it.

We do have rptconfig files created when we modify the rptdesign files in eclipse. But while deploying to linux servers we deploy only rptdesign. Do you see any issue with rptconfig files being created.?

Thanks,
KKP

No, they are only created in the designer and store the parameters
values of the last run.
