I am struggling with BIRT. I want to use it to prepare standardized ppt project reports. The resulting ppt file should contain one slide per project value in the dataset.
Creating a one-slider report works very well, where I struggle is to loop over the projects:
in the Advanced BIRT Example workflow, it is shown that this can be done by putting the data to report in a Table report item, and then using the Table > Groups > Expression + Page Break option to limit the content of the table to whatever matches the expression (here, the project), and move to a new slide
what I want to achieve is more complicated, in the sense that the report is built on nested Grids :
but the Grid Report item does not have a Groups tab that I could use to loop over the project values, just like with the Table item.
So to summarize, the Grid gives me the flexibility to customize the report as I want, Table is not flexible but allows for the creation of one slide per project …What could be the way to go forward?
Thanks a lot in advance!!
