    Text boxes not exporting from Excel template to .pdf

    Qlik User

      Hi,

       

      I'm producing a report using an Excel template.

       

      The template has a number of Excel text boxes, which are filled with data from an adjacent cell.

       

      When exporting to a .xlsx file these text boxes contain the data as expected, but when exporting to .pdf they are empty - What is the reason for this and how can I fix it?

       

      Thanks

          Hi,

          • What version of NPrinting are you using?
          • In XLS template - how is the textbox added to iot? as an image?
            • "...when exporting to pdf..."  do you mean when printing your XLS to PDF (Yes - NPrinting Prints your XLS file if you choose PDF output from XLS template)? Maybe there is an issue with your PDF printer

          regards

          Lech

              Hi Lech,

               

              • Using version 17.2.3.0
              • The XLS template has a textbox which directly references a cell which contains to a Qlik Sense straight table object (Not actually passing a Sense text box image object). When viewing the report in Excel, the data is there as expected, however when printing to PDF from NPrinting the textbox contains "0%" as opposed to "3%" or whatever

               

              It seems most likely an issue with the PDF printer element, as the textbox contains the correct data in the XLS file itself.

               

              What is the default PDF printer installed with NPrinting? Is this a common issue?

               

              Thanks
