I have a report with a field filled with a java.lang.String value. This report generates an excel file and I need to format it as text.
Currently using iReport 3.7.6 to generate de jrxml and jasper files and jasper 4.6.0 with a web application.
I tried setting pattern format for rhe cell in the jasper report to @, but I guess it is not valid.
On other 'numeric' fields with a given pattern I was able to use JRXlsAbstractExporterParameter.FORMAT_PATTERNS_MAP to give it a text format in excel with a map mapping the format '#,##0' to '@', but I have not been able to apply this way with the String field
How can I do it?
Could I do it with a newer jasper version ?
