Best way to generate a report from multiple objects

Hi, 

 

I have created multiple org-units and each org-units has a One-Page Organizational Chart  Diagram linked to it. 

 

Ex: 

Org-Unit 1

    Organization Chart 1

    Org-Unit 1a

        Organization Chart 1A

        Org-Unit 1a1

        Org-Unit 1a2

        Org-Unit 1a3

    Org-Unit 1b

    Org-Unit 1c

Org-Unit 2

    Organization Chart 2

    Org-Unit 2a

    Org-Unit 2b

    Org-Unit 2c

 

 

I would like to generate a document containing all the Organizational charts within the same document (each page being a different Org-Unit). Can be a PDF or a Word, doesn't matter. From my example: I would like to have a report containing Organization Chart 1, Organization Chart 1a and Organization Chart 2 (3 pages).

 

Right now, I have to print each diagram in a PDF and then re-assemble them using a PDF editor tool. Is there any way to group all diagrams within the same report?

 

I have tried creating a new Word Report Template, but I can only get one object in the report, I have not found a way to report on multiple objects using this feature. 

 

Any ideas on how I could get this done?

 

Thanks!

Hello Simon,

 

you can easily do this with a "recursive" RTF Descriptor (Word) (a descriptor calling itself)

 

Your descriptor should look like this :

I do not know if you still have the problem since your question is from last december, but I hope that helps !

Hi,

 

Yes the question is still valid but I'm not familiar with the RTF reporting at all... can you point any documentation to help me start my first report using this? 

 

Thanks,

Sorry Simon, I missed your question.

You need to read the technical article called "Hopex Studio - Publisher" :
