Page Properties Report Macro not showing all data

I am having a strange problem when displaying my page properties report. If I leave the settings blank for "Columns to show" it correctly displays all data. When I try to only display a few of the columns by typing them in - "Current Status, Priority, Time Required, Estimated Completion" not all the the fields are shown for each entry in the table. The Priority column is missing the value on a few entries and then the Estimated Completion column is missing data for all the pages except 1. I am not sure why this is happening since the data is correctly being pulled from the pages when I have it display all columns. Any ideas?

Hi Steve,

Please log a support issue since I've seen this behaviour before and I'd like to investigate on it.

It looks like sometimes the row names don't match and don't get listed.

I know a temporal workaround that solves it that is copy the content from a Page Properties macro that is working and paste it on the one that is not working and manually changing the values.

Please include this answer on the ticket so I can assist you further.

Cheers,

Mauro

Thanks for the info Mauro. I opened a support ticket yesterday as well - JST-86386

We found that the cause is that when manually modifying a Page Properties table, a hidden tag (like <p> or <span>) might be present in the field text, making fields with same text be treated as different. This also makes impossible to list a column by it's name.

The bug report CONF-32367 has all the details about the problem and how to workaround it.

Cheers!
