0031676: Some values are not shown in XLS format after Jasper Library Upgrade using Microsoft Office 2007

DescriptionSome values are not shown in XLS format after Jasper Library Upgrade using Microsoft Office 2007
Steps To Reproduce1. Run any manual report in XLS format
2. Open xls file with Microsoft Excel 2007and realize that Credit and Debit values are not shown
Proposed SolutionThe cell auto detect feature of Jasper is generating the format of the column as "Personalize", this causes the values not be shown.

Without using this feature all the values are exported as strings.

Notice that this is problem not happening with LibreOffice.
TagsNo tags attached.

fixes issue 31676: Some values are not shown in XLS format using MS Office

The detect cell type feature was not working properly for BigInteger values in Office after the Jasper Library Upgrade. A personalized format was applied causing the data not be shown when opening the report.

To solve this problem the detect cell type feature has been disabled. This way, by default, all the values in the XLS will be exported as strings.

This default configuration can be overriden at report level. As an example, the General Ledger Report and Trial Balance report have been updated properly. With this configuration, those reports are now using number formatting for the cells showing the BigDecimal values.

Now the detect cell type feature is disabled by default. The XLS report content is exported as string now.

This configuration can be overridden at report level, adding the following content into the .jrxml template:

1) Add the "net.sf.jasperreports.export.xls.detect.cell.type" property with true as its value.
2) Add a pattern for the text field. For example, the patternExpression tag can be used to define the numeric mask.

As an example the General Ledger Report and the Trial Balance has been updated properly. We are using the numeric format output defined for reports in the Format.xml file. This way this reports can apply that format automatically.

code reviewed

-General Ledger and Trial Balance reports are correctly exported, numeric values are seen as numbers in spreadsheet (both libreoffice and office)
-Reports can be exported to PDF
-Other reports (ie. Purchase Order Report) are correctly exported to XLS but their numeric columns are seen as string (both libreoffice and office)
