weird xls and (csv) files

2003-02-13 14:58

This may not be iReport related but if so just blame it on JasperReport and I post it there.


I have been trying out to generate to xls and csv (and show in excel). The xls just looks plain weird with a bunch rows and columns that have minimal width or height and the csv file have show the column headers and the detail in different columns. When I really work on it I may get the csv file to look good but as soon as I touch anything it is a lot of work to get it right again. What do I do to make the csv and xls generatio to unserstand what columns headers belong to what details

The generation of excel is based on a virtual grid mapped to the real grid of excel.

Every space between two objects is mapped on a excel column.

You must align all objects verticalli as they are cells of your grid. Any space will be "mapped" in a row/column.


I hope this helps you
