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.
