Table Exports

A table export produces tabular output from a fully-layouted display model. A table export cannot handle overlapping elements and therefore has to remove them.

To support layout debugging, the Reporting engine stores a lot of extra information in the layout model. This increases memory consumption but makes it easier to develop Reporting solutions. These Reporting engine debug settings should never be enabled in production environments:

  • org.pentaho.reporting.engine.classic.core.modules.output.table.base.ReportCellConflicts
  • org.pentaho.reporting.engine.classic.core.modules.output.table.base.VerboseCellMarkers
Note: These settings are false by default. Report Designer comes with its own method to detect overlapping elements and does not rely on these settings.
