RB 16.03 - XLSSettings

edited January 2017 in Devices
Hi,

I'm currently using RB 16.03 with Delphi XE7.

The problem that I'm running into is that the values that are entered into
the XLXSettings for the Title and Subject don't appear to be saved down to
the Excel file for any of the XLS output options (XLSReport, XLSData,
XLSXReport, or XLSXData).

I'm planning on moving up to RB18 later this year, but can't do it at this
point. Is there anything that we can do with RB16 to get this information
saved down (and maybe document Comments too) to the export file?

    Hi Terry,

    At one time it worked, but was later removed because Excel added stricter
    validation for XLS that would not validate ReportBuilder's exported XLS
    files. Going forward I can research adding support for the Xlsx format, that
    is probably more doable. The old XLS format is binary, poorly documented and
    with the stricter validation looks like MS is trying to kill that file
    format.
