Description thomaskrumbein 2007-09-25 13:19:58 UTC
Playing around with the report-designer 1.0.1 I found some real strange
behaviour.  So it is not really usable.
1. I create a report and want to summerize some currency-fields. So I create a
new  function with will do this - well, works fine. 
In report details there are two fields with represents currency-values. I
formated them using the proberty "Format" in report-designer (see "_Bild1").
Trying the Report at this stage, the fields will be shown as ",xx", so two
digits after decimal-point, but without the currency-sign. OK, that may be OK.
Then I create the function (see "_Bild4") and add a formated textfielt to the
report. I assign the same "Format" (see "_Bild2"), but the result is very
strange...  see "_Bild3".

2. Playing around with datefields you will found even strange behaviours. 
Insert a Datefield using "Insert - Date" - the Format is correct in desgn-view,
but without any format in report-view (the internal number is shown correct ;-)
). OK, you can reformat the field in Writer itself - this is a workaround.
Creating own function with datevalues I will get no values or even the internal
numbers (see pictures "_Bild5", "_Bild6", "_bild7".

The date- and time problem only occur when inserting the fields in the pagehead-
or pagefooter-section.

I can confirm it also under GNU/Linux so I set OS to all.

I see also that all curency values are negative. which isn't right.

Comment 10 Mechtilde 2008-02-03 12:22:05 UTC
I found a Workaround

If there are no negative numbers you can delete the formatting of it in the
number formatting. Then it works :-(

So you can organize the calculation to have no negative numer.

Part 1 seems to be a duplicate of 80479 - actually, currency values don't work
reliably at the moment :(
Part 2 seems to be a duplicate of another issue whose number I don't recall ATM,
but it should be fixed in OOo 2.4.
Comment 12 Mechtilde 2008-03-19 12:38:10 UTC
the mistake from "bild3" is fixed in 2.4.0

To the second part there is a discussion on
