Thread: Report loses formating when accessed form any client machine

    Unhappy Report loses formating when accessed form any client machine


    I am relatively new to Pentaho and would really appreciate any help.

    I create reports in PRD and publish them to a remote server.
    These reports get published and are viewable from any client machine.
    However the formatting on the reports like color, etc is lost.

    The report is displayed in plain text format with proper alignment, however the color and fonts are lost.

    When I view the report on the server machine browser they retain the proper formatting.

    I have searched this forum for any issue with formatting but was not able to find any

    Also another problem is images and not displayed even after I link them to
    http://ipaddressort/pentaho-stype/images/imag.png as suggested in the thread
    "Where to put images when publishing to platform"

    The BI server is installed on ubuntu 10.04.01
    I am using biserver-ce 3.6.0-stable and PRD version 3.6.1-GA

    Could someone please hep??

    Thanks in advance

    Have you updated your base-url?

    In: biserver-ce/tomcat/webapps/pentaho/WEB-INF/web.xml there is a value base-url ... it needs to be set to something other than localhost. This is more a BI Platform issue than reporting, so you would likely get better results in that sub-forum
    I'm no expert.
