Hello again, Dan,
Here comes the report as produced correctly under LO 3.6.5 and Report Writer 1.2.3

Thanks, Dan,
Well, I have good news but also bad news:
This morning I was offered an update to Report Builder which I installed. Now
the Extension Manager shows that I have Report Builder 1.2.3 installed on my LO
4.0.2-Linux-Debian-Wheezy-32bit system. That's the good news! The bad news is that
it still ignores font specifications. For example, it still prints bold letters only
in the heading line of a report but not so in detail lines. I enclose a pertinent
report. In it, the detail lines under the heading "Titel" (the heading itself IS in
a bold font) is specified as "bold" but printed in a normal font (which - by the way -
isn't even the font I specify for the column). I will also send the same report that
is generated under LO 3.6.5 and Windows when I bring up that system. This is weird!

The Oracle Report Builder (Version 1.2.1) is not really usable in this
Fonts are ignored, fields vertically positioned in a wrong way. I
don't remember
changing that Report Builder when going from 3.6 to 4.0.2, so I assume
the problems
must have to do with changes in the way the Oracle Report Builder is
being called
from LO-Base.

Under Windows/Vista I still use LO and when I display my
extensions it
shows that under THAT system I use "Report Builder 1.2.3". Everything
is just
fine there.

Altogether, I am somewhat puzzled with the naming...
-- Is "Oracle Report Builder" something different, and if so...
-- How can I get hold of a version of "Report Builder" that works
under LO-4.0.2

Thanks a lot and - sorry to bother you during the weekend
I am puzzled also. I also have the Debian version of LO 4.0.2, and mine
is Report Builder 1.2.3 not Oracle 1.2.1. Where did you download your
copy of LO 4.0.2? I got mine from
If you downloaded yours from the Debian website, that might explain the
difference, but I do not understand why that would be.
