Hi,

I'm using BIRT 3.7.1 and I have some issues when exporting to DOC format:
- The hyperlinks and bookmarks don't work correctly, however they are working fine with PDF export. The link is correct but the bookmark is not created in the DOC file, so when I click on the link it goes nowhere in the document.
- I have trouble with the crosstab layout: in the PDF export it looks OK but in the DOC export, the crosstab layout is very bad. I am using the auto layout because the number of columns is variable.

Here is a Java project with a report example showing both of my issues: dl.dropbox.com/u/70923442/HyperlinkAndCrosstabLayoutIssue.zip

Maybe I did something wrong in the report but I think it may be some configuration problem in the code calling the report generation, since the PDF export works pretty well.

Thanks in advance for your help!

David

Oops. Additional question: how can I delete the many duplicates for this topic? (there was a bug on the forum, the topic didn't seem to be created so I tried again and again...)

This looks like it may be a bug. I got it to work with your example
report by moving the bookmark expression:
"crossTabBookmark"; from the label above the crosstab to the the
crosstab itself.

Also do you mind opening a bug for this and submit your csv and design?
I tried it in 4.2 and it appears it is still an issue.

Thanks Jason.
I opened a bug in Bugzilla about the bookmark issue.
