Report Designer is displaying incorrect value at random when the output format is PDF. The same report output in XLS or CSV gives the correct values. Attached are two sets of test output from 3.6GA and 3.8GA. Both have the same problem, but at different point in the output.
The correct value, 10.0, is on line 242 of the 3.6_test.xls file.
The corresponding field on page 6 of the PDF output 3.6_test.pdf shows 14.0.
The correct value, 14.0, is on line 247 of the 3.8_test.xls file.
The corresponding field on page 7 of the PDF output 3.8_test.pdf shows 11.9.
The Excel output for both 3.6 and 3.8 are consistant.
The PDF output for 3.6 and 3.8 are incorrect, but the problem has moved to a different location.
The problem can be illustrated with the testcase attached,
- Use the SQL script to create and load the data table for testing on MySQL.
- Open the sample report and go to the subreport.
- Modify the data connection to use the sample data.
- Run the report to Excel and PDF to see the result.
