Second, the Report Headers do not seem to work as I expected. The
Report Footer section seems to be okay, but the Report Header section is
under the Page Header on each page.  I expected them to be reversed -
the Report Header first, followed by the Page Header, the latter which
goes on each page, the former goes on the first page only.  As it is,
the Page Header and Report Header are the same thing, going on each
page. Is there a way to move the Report Header to page one only or is
this a known bug?

There are many ReportBuilder bugs in successive release versions - some get fixed in one version and others appear, these then get fixed and still others appear or re-appear - it seems to be an ever-changing landscape. Your best bet to find out is Bugzilla, but I'm pretty sure that what you are experiencing is a known bug.

Additionally, the problem might depend on the distributor of the LO version you are using. Ubuntu PPA versions of LO, for example, tend to have their own additional bugs, especially in extensions (like the ReportBuilder).


For the record, I am using the binary RPM I downloaded from the LO website. So, I doubt this would be the problem. As I said, this is not a work-stopper for me, just a query (pun?) to see if anyone had a fix or work-around. It should get fixed sooner or later. I am primarily glad this version is running at a reasonable speed, unlike previous versions I tried to use and gave up for a 3rd-party report builder which had its own set of bugs. That report builder also had problems with inserting lines - option in the menu, but did nothing. However, it did do report headers properly.
