    Report with Powerpoint - two questions

    Jaime Lemes Orive

      Hi everyone

       

      I´m working with Nprinting, creating a report with Powerpoint.

       

      I´m trying to create slide heading.I´m following these steps (from this link: How to Use Pages to Generate Individual Slides in PowerPoint for Each Combination of Multiple Field Values):

      "

      ...Expand TB04_Page - Table for Field Combination Pages in NPrinting node

      Compose the slide heading, dragging the Country and Year node tokens and dropping them in the appropriate positions..."

       

      I have already created two node tokens (separately), one in the first slide and another in the second slide. They work fine. It just, in another new slide (and empty) I want to create another heading using two node tokens.

       

      The problems comes:

       

      When I have dragged and dropped the node token (just one field) and set the preview, it doesn´t work. It just show the code but not what should shown. (with the two previous slides, it works just fine, but now, with this new one it just doen´t work anymore).

      2º When I try to compose the slide heading with two fields. I don´t know how to do it.(see attachement)

       

       

      Thank you.

          I just found out one of my questions:

           

          2º" When I try to compose the slide heading with two fields. I don´t know how to do it.(see attachement)"


          Answer: It requieres create first a table:

           

          1- First you need to create a table in your  qvw with the info you want. For example, a table with two fields.
          2- Create the table in Nprinting. In the edit template screen, you have to create in "tables" the one you want to add.
          3- In "page" add the table you just created.

           

          Nonetheless, I still having the first issue:
          "When I have dragged and dropped the node token (just one field) and set the preview, it doesn´t work. It just show the code but not what should shown."


          Testing different ways to solve this matter I have found a curious result. If I "tag" the node tokens I want with a page that already have one node working, it make works fine the node tokens I have put (the new one). It´s odd. Of course, this method produced that the node token that already was working, now stop working.

           

          It seems like it´s impossible to have to node tokens working at the same time, unless you create a table.

           

          ::::UPDATE::::

           

          I  have found the answer to my first question too:

           

          "When I have dragged and dropped the node token (just one field) and set the preview, it doesn´t work. It just show the code but not what should shown."

           

          The solution for this was rather simple. The reason why I couldn´t make work my node: It is a bug (one I hope the developers take good note and fix this!). I have had to restart the report from scratch and re do completely. Follow the same steps and works.
