The footer page number report does not work when exporting the report to DOCX file. The Page No function works fine with PDF, but not with DOCX as it gives DocPageNumber.

Hi Neal,

Do we have any ETA for this?

Also please confirm this defect for both cases.

- Page number does not work

- Table shrinks when exported to DOCX file

Hi Pratiksha,

I do not have an ETA for this at this time, though there has been some investigation into this and it appears it may be limitation with the library being used, so it it could be a larger piece of work to resolve this. From our testing, this issue is only present when there is a Text object in the same cell. Just adding the Page Number with no additional text exports correctly. This may be a workaround in the interim.

This defect is only for Page number not working as expected. I do not see any mention of a shrinking table in this request. Has this been raised in a separate ticket?

Cheers,

Neal

Hi Neal,

I tested this use case and I am not getting Page number in header even tough I have set only Page number without any text field.

For the pdf format same reports works fine.

About the table shrink yes, table gets truncated i.e if there are more than 10 columns it shows only 9.

Could you please confirm this?

Hi Pratiksha,

My apologies for the delay. The Page Number by itself works in 8.0.6 and above.

I have raised another issue for the table shrinking as this will need to be investigated separately.

Hi Pratiksha,

Thank you for letting me know this. I have tested on the same version and have not been able to replicate this. Please see this video for my testing.

Can you please get a similar screen recording of their process so I can see if there are any differences? If you can also include some logs for the same timeframe that woul dbe helpful to see if there are any errors in there.

Cheers,

Hi Neal,

Unfortunately I can't play that vide due to some technical issues. Attached is the configuration screenshots and output file from my 8.0 6 system

Let me know if I am missing anything here.

Hi Pratiksha,

Thank you for sending through these examples, however I am now confused as I both of these items contain the page number in the header as per your configuration. Here is a screen shot of both documents side-by-side (PDF on the left, DOCX on the right) as well as the configuration option in the bottom right. Looking at what you have provided, the page number alone is working correctly as previously mentioned.

From this image, there is no issue with page number alone, so it is only a matter of waiting for the task to be completed by our developers for a future release to allow text and page numbers to work together on a single header/footer text box.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Cheers,

Neal
