Export Excel formula in JasperReports

Sorry to create another post as the previous one cannot be displayed correctly due to html character.

I am using evaluation copy of aspose.cell for Jasper Report and evaluating if aspose.cell could fulfill our user requirement.

I am able to export editable chart using ACXlsExporter. However, I am unable to export cell value as excel formula using the property:

{property name=“net.sf.jasperreports.export.xls.formula” value=“7”}

The exporter always exports according to the value specified in {textFieldExpression}, or null if it is not set. If I use JRXlsxExporter from Jasper Report, all excel formula can be exported correctly. I could not find

I set the property in my jrxml:

{property name=“net.sf.jasperreports.export.xls.detect.cell.type” value=“true”/}

I also tried to set the parameter before export:

exporter.setParameter(ACXlsExporterParameter.IS_DETECT_CELL_TYPE, Boolean.TRUE) but still fail.

I also checked the demo of aspose but excel formula is never used. Jasper report demo come up with a excel formula example and it works only if I use JRXlsxExporter.

Or if I missed some configuration instead?

I attached my .jrxml and .jrprint file (which is exactly the file XlsFormulaReport come up with the JasperReport demo) and the code snapshot for generating the report.


jasperPrint = JasperFillManager.fillReport(“F:\workspace\JasperReport\TestJasperReport\ReportTemplate\XlsFormulaReport.jasper”, hm, beanColDataSource);

File destFile = new File(“F:\workspace\JasperReport\TestJasperReport\Output\XlsFormulaReport.xls”);

ACXlsExporter exporter = new ACXlsExporter();

exporter.setParameter(JRExporterParameter.JASPER_PRINT, jasperPrint);

exporter.setParameter(JRExporterParameter.OUTPUT_FILE_NAME, destFile.toString());

exporter.setParameter(ACXlsExporterParameter.IS_DETECT_CELL_TYPE, Boolean.TRUE);

exporter.setParameter(JRXlsExporterParameter.IS_ONE_PAGE_PER_SHEET, Boolean.FALSE);



Thanks a lot in advance!
