chandan.kumar, please forgive my ignorance. I have questions about the patch.

1. How do you apply the patch?
2. Does this apply to Jasper Studio 6.2 Jasper Server Patch?
3. Does this create valid Page Headers and Footers for docx exports?
4. Are there any additional instructions for creating headers and footers?

Hi dconde_1,
Thanks for your reply. Please see the inline response for your questions:
1. How do you apply the patch?
I used sourceforge hosted(https://sourceforge.net/p/jasperreports/code/ci/master/tree/) git clone to take the source code of Jasperreports. I used the "git format-patch -o " command to create this patch. I'm not an expert in git repository tool but i believe "git apply" command should be used to apply the patch.
2. Does this apply to Jasper Studio 6.2 Jasper Server Patch?
No, this patch is applicable to Jasperreports trunk code.
3. Does this create valid Page Headers and Footers for docx exports?
Yes, this patch will created valid Page Headers and Footers for docx exports.
4. Are there any additional instructions for creating headers and footers?
No, the jrxml file should have a header and footer place holder to be generated with docx.

Please let me know if you have any other query.
Thanks,
Chandan Kumar

Is this patch now included in the newer versions of Jasper Studio? I downloaded a community edition 6.3 yesterday. I created a basic report with a page header with a couple of text fields but when I export the report to Word the page header is not a Word header. Please assist.
Thank you, Jenelle

I'm also looking for this feature, but as of now the 'footer' seems to be a table placed at the bottom of the document. Using Jasper reports 6.4.0 (from maven as a java library, not jasper report server). If a patch exists for this could it be incorporated into the codebase?
