Heinrich,
Thanks for the heads-up on 4.1.2.3 lines working. I plan to try 4.x when it gets to 4.1.5+. I will try that Report Builder at that time. I am currently using Slackware 14.0 Linux, 3.2.29 32-bit SMP kernel, MySQL 5.5.29, mysql-connector-java-5.1.18, LO 3.6.7.2 and KDE 4.8.5.

I am aware of the talk on this forum regarding the time values. I am using the MySQL Connector Java for my interface to my MySQL database, so I may not run into that problem, but I will look for it, since I do use times as well as dates. There is also a migration to mariadb in the future for me.

Thanks again.
Girvin

Hi Girvin,
I did also have the problem of horizontal lines not working. However, they do appear correctly now under LO 4.1.2.3. My system is Linux-Mint-15, 32 bit. But then - as I have mentioned before (and filed a bug report) - time-values don't appear correctly both in Base as such and of course in report builder as a consequence. Everything works o.k. when using JDBC (for the time being...)
It's a never-ending story!
Regards
Heinrich

Hi Girvin,


However, I still see that lines still are not supported.  It appears as
if I am inserting horizontal lines in my report, but they do not print.
I do not see any way to make them thicker, in case that is the problem.

I don't know whether this has been fixed yet in current release versions
of 4.x, if Robert is reading, he might know more about that.


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).
