Error description

  • When you export a DOORS table which has some cells without
    bordering, then the resulting table in Word 2007 shows the
    entire table to have no border.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1) create a new module that contains a DOORS table that is 2x2
    2) modify the table properties so that one cell in that table
    has no border
    3) run File ? Export ? Microsoft Word ? and choose the Book
    layout and leave all options default
    
    Expected results:
    The output in Word should be that only one cell has no borders
    just as it is defined in DOORS
    
    Actual results:
    Entire table in the Word output has no borders
    
    Notes:
    This is what happens when you export to Word 2007. This was
    tested in DOORS 9.3.0.3 and DOORS 9.3.0.4. But when the above
    steps were tested with DOORS 8.3 to Word 2007 then only one cell
    had no border as expected. So it seems to be a problem
    introduced some time after DOORS 8.3 and before DOORS 9.3.0.3.
    
    This was also tested while exporting from DOORS 9.3.0.3 and
    DOORS 9.3.0.4 to Word 2003. In this scenario it seems like every
    cell had a border.

    The template Text repeats twice when using a Custom MS Word
    Template to export DOORS data to MS Word. A custom template
    was created which contains cover page and an index page,
    when a module is exported from DOORS to MS Word using the
    custom template, cover page and index page is displayed
    twice.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code changes have been made to fix the issue.The cover page
    and index page is displayed only once after change
