BI Report Export Problem - Selection data missing

12 Views

Hi all,

I´m pretty new to Web reports and now I have a problem which might be easy to solve for you experts. 😉

The problem appears when exporting a report. If the user exports the report to PDF or Excel, the data is exported correctly but the selection settings, that the user set, are missing. Only the field name are shown, but not the selected item. Its somewhat of a cosmetical problem, but important to the users.

Interestingly enough, we use many other templates which have the exact same functionality and where it works correctly.

I compared the XML on code on those templates, but there is no major difference.

Here is the important code (at least in my understanding) of the template:

<bi:param name="BUTTON_LIST" type="ORDEREDLIST">
                                  <bi:param name="BUTTON" type="COMPOSITE" index="1">
                                    <bi:param name="CAPTION" value="PDF">
                                    </bi:param>
                                    <bi:param name="ACTION" type="CHOICE" value="INSTRUCTION">
                                      <bi:param name="INSTRUCTION">
                                        <bi:command type="EXPORT">
                                          <bi:param name="ITEM_REF_LIST" type="UNORDEREDLIST">
                                            <bi:param name="ITEM_REF" index="1" value="TEXT_ITEM_9">
                                            </bi:param>
                                            <bi:param name="ITEM_REF" index="2" value="INFO_FIELD_ITEM_2">
                                            </bi:param>
                                            <bi:param name="ITEM_REF" index="3" value="ANALYSIS_ITEM_1">
                                            </bi:param>

                                          <bi:param name="FOOTER_LEFT" value="DATE">

                                          <bi:param name="FOOTER_RIGHT" value="PAGEOFPAGES">
