BIRT PDF to Word Conversion - best way to convert BIRT PDF report into Word

Hi,

I have a customised BIRT report that is generated but then I have the requirement for some of the section to have manual commentary added so I was wondering what the suggested approach is to get the BIRT report from a PDF into a word document and once the commentary has been manaully added transferred back into a PDF?

Thanks Matt

RE: BIRT PDF to Word Conversion - best way to convert BIRT PDF report into Word

Hi Matt,

If possible create and use a Word report template for your report. More on Word report templates can be found in Silk Central documentation: http://documentation.microfocus.com/help/topic/com.microfocus.sctm.doc/GUID-8FB05FE3-1241-4431-AB5A-FC37B82D2EAF.html

If this is not possible and you have to go with BIRT and PDF then you could use some 3rd party tool to convert the PDF to a Word document. For example MS Word itself can open PDF files and edit them. Save it as PDF again when you are finished.

Regards,
Hubert
