### Exporting to Word / RTF using XML / XSLT?

• Email
• Follow

Have any of you successfully exported Filemaker data into Word format or
possibly even Rich Text Format? We've tried a few examples using XML / XSLT,
but unfortunately it seems almost impossible to work out how to retain
formatted text and return characters / paragraph structures, etc.

Any help out there on successfully creating fully formatted, beautifully
crafted Word documents complete with charts, etc exported from container
fields?

Have you checked out EZxslt (at
http://www.chapsoft.com/ezxslt/index.html)?  It may help with formatting
your XML documents from FileMaker.

I often use RTF for moving data into Word.  Unless you know RTF off the
top of your head, I often start by creating a document in Word with all
my desired formatting, and then save it as an RTF document.  From there,
you have a coding template to put into FileMaker.  To do so, you will
need to loop through each record and write the desired field values and
RTF formatting to a global field.  Once you have your full document in a
global (warning: 64,000 character limit), you need to get your found set
down to one record (three script steps: show all records, omit record,
show omitted) and then export your global field as a tab-delimited file
with a .doc extension for easy opening in Word.

Using bootloader
Hallo, I have made a small microcontroller based on microblaze, with a Spartan 3 starter board. At power on, I would load bitstream into fpga and my software into board ram. I have programmed using impact the board flash rom with file: download.bit (generated with edk). (49% occupied). Before uploading I have updated it with bootloader (it should be loaded into block ram). When I power on the board, now the fpga is configured by itself. Now I should copy my software into flash rom. Bootloader, at boot, should copy it into board ram and execute, but I'm not able. I have tried with Program Flash Memory tool, without obtaining any result. It writes: Processor started. Type "stop" to stop processor And I can't write like into xmd consolle. What could I do?

using SQLalchemy
We have a very chaotic database (on MySql) at the moment, with for example table names used as keys to query other tables (but that's just an example). We are going to redesign it but first I still have to replace the perl+vbscript system with only one Python program, so I still have to deal with the current state. I'm trying to use SQLalchemy and it looks absolutely great, but in general as a policy we don't use external dependencies.. To try to do an exception in this case: - are there any problems with SQLalchemy on Windows? - are there any possibly drawbacks of using SQLalchemy instead of the MySqlDB interface? For the second point I guess that we might have a bit less fine tuning, but the amount of data is not so much and speed is also not a bit issue (also because all the queries are extremely inefficient now). Any other possible issue? Thanks, Andrea

Using const?
In this code I am trying to make a const instance of class B in main. But I get the error: test.c++: In function �int main()�: test.c++:34: error: uninitialized const �b� Why should it be initialized? And how do I initialize an object? #include <iostream> class A { public: void foo() { printf("non-const method\n"); } void foo() const { printf("const method\n"); } }; class B { public: A a; void callfoo() { a.foo(); } void callfoo() const { a.foo(); } }; int main() { const B b; return 0; } desktop wrote: > In this code I am try

using rtti
hi all, i want to get the name of the class of an object during run-time. the problem is when i'm using the rtti mechanism of name(), the name is preceded by the length. So, i get something like 3abc (instead of abc). could someone shed some light on this. thanx "MoCha" <mohitchakraborty@rediffmail.com> wrote in message news:7d7757a7.0311252016.67d94e13@posting.google.com... | i want to get the name of the class of an object during run-time. the | problem is when i'm using the rtti mechanism of name(), the name is | preceded by the length. So, i get something like 3abc (instead of | abc). | could someone shed some light on this. The string returned by a typeid's name() member function is implementation-defined. It could embed information about the namespace that contains the class in various ways, and any other information. So you have two choices with the current C++ standard: - Use rtti, and unmangle the returned string in a platform-specific way. - Add a virtual function to your class, which will return a name that you can define as needed.

Using reflection
How do you obtain on object refrence using reflection. I need the reference to the actual object not the class. Basically I want to have a server send a message to a client, the client will run the message, which will,using reflection set an Arraylist in the client to the same value as the arrayList that was sent with the message from the client. How do I do that?

This is only true if Class#newInstance is used. You can create

using libusb
address those: The thing that's brought into your code by using #include is called a header file, not a library file. The fact that the compiler can't open that file has nothing to do with the library. When your code gets linked, you will have to tell the compiler the correct location where it can find the corresponding library file, but this compilation has failed before that question has even come up. There's a list of locations that the compiler is supposed to search when you use #include <lusb0_usb.h> That list of locations can, in principle, be quite different for each implementation of C, but it always includes whatever location the standard headers are stored in (even if they're not stored in a directory). That's why you should use #include <> for standard headers. For the particular compiler you're using, the default list of locations apparently does not include whichever directory you've currently got lusb0_usb.h in. If you were to use #include "lusb0_usb.h" there might or might not be a different list of locations your compiler will search for the file - that's up to your compiler. However

quantum visualizations using IDL
I recently finished documenting some IDL procedures and functions that calculate solutions to the Schrodinger equation of quantum mechanics for a number of different situations (e.g. for different potentials, in one and two dimensions, time-independent, time-dependent). For those of you in attendance at the IDL Users' Group meeting in Boulder a few weeks ago, I demonstrated a number of these programs during my presentation. Since a few of you at the meeting expressed interest in the code and documentation, you can find it at the following URL: http://www.ncnr.nist.gov/staff/dimeo/qvis/s
