Error description

  • Incorrect output generated by default book.dta Template if the
    First Column in a DOORS Module is the Main Column.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    -----------------------
    1.? Consider a View in a Module where the first Column is the
    Main (Object Heading + Object Text) Column and has few other
    columns for other attributes.
    
    2.? Export this view using the inbuilt File ? Export ? Document
    Generation wizard while making sure that the default 'book.dta'
    template that comes along with the installation of DOORS is used
    for the export.
    
    3.? You would notice that only data from the Main Column (i.e.
    only Object Heading ? Object Text) is exported and data from all
    the other Columns is not present in the generated document.
