Hi there,

when i run a report with chart(s), the chart(s) not showing in excel output. :confused:
output to pdf, html is correct.

i'm using version 1.5.5 on tomcat, java 1.5.

i think with 1.5.4 that was o.k.

I'm sorry, but...
How did you do your chart?
Because I am using Pentaho 1.5.5, and my chart doesn't work! :(

I posted this thread: http://forums.pentaho.org/showthread.php?t=55706 (http://forums.pentaho.org/showthread.php?t=55706)

Can you help me, please?

Thank's in advanced!

until today i'm using report designer 1.2 RC 2.
Now 1.5.6 is out, try it, it seems not to have these problems!

But my excel problem with the bi platform is still there

Hope this helps...

This was a bug that was fixed for the RC1 release. Once you have the RC1 release running (with the samples), run the Solutions --> Reporting --> JFreeReport with Pie Charts example.

Then add "&type=xls" (without the quotes) to the URL and refresh the page. This should run the same report but the output should be an excel document instead of PDF.

If you are still having issues with charts in Excel, let us know.


PS. For reference, the JIRA issue for this problem is http://jira.pentaho.org/browse/BISERVER-112

Hi David,
thanks for your reply.
I have tried the JFreeReport with Pie Charts example in RC1. You're right, its working, great!.

But when i try the JFreeReport with Bar Chart example, there is still no chart in excel output.

If it can be a problem with charts created without chart component?

After I posted my message, I noticed that not all the reports are working correctly (as you pointed out). I am currently looking to this ... and I have created a JIRA case for this issue: http://jira.pentaho.org/browse/PRE-40

This issue has been resolved. It will be released with RC2 (or GA ... which ever comes first). If you would like the fix ahead of time, I get send you the updated Pentaho reporting jar files.
