I'm developing reports in BIRT Designer Version 4.4.2.v201410272105.
I can run a report and export the results to DOCX format. When I open the DOCX on a PC, it works fine.
But when I open the DOCX using Word for Mac, it doesn't work at all. The computer even seems to struggle to open the file even though it's 200k. Formatting is garbled, data appears to be missing, you can't edit any of the text in the report. The file is corrupted somehow. Same with DOC format as well.
I've tried this on multiple Macs with the same results. The same document opens fine in LibreOffice for Mac.
I'm not sure if this is an issue with the report as it is exported from BIRT, or with Word for Mac. I'm mostly wondering if anyone else has encountered this? And if you've managed to find a way around it?
