Is there a way to import a word doc into a report footer?  I have a very long footer with lots of notes about the report and I am looking for the best solution to add the notes to the report.

Hi Ken,

While you can export reports to word documents, the opposite is not available.

A possible workaround could be using RadEditor ASP.NET AJAX from Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX.

Please, check the Editor - Import  Export to DOCX article for details on the available functionality for Export to/Import from word format.
The Editor - MS Word-like Experience article suggests how to configure the RadEditor so that your user experience is similar to the one they are used to from MS Word. With this approach, the documents get converted to HTML that you can use with the HtmlTextBox.

Please, let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Dimitar,

How do you accomplish this using the report designer?  I don't see this function in the report designer.  I added a HTML text box but I still don't see how to import a file.

Hello Ken,

You cannot import a file to the HtmlTextBox.

To use the generated HTML from the RadEditor first copy/cut it.

Then open the expression box for the HtmlTextBox by right-clicking on it and selecting the Expression...  option.

After that click on the Html View and paste the HTML code there.

I hope that I have been able to help, please let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Dimitar,

I am using the stand-alone report designer.  I do not see the RadEditor in any of the tool bars on the report designer.  Do I need to enable something different?

Thanks.

Hi Ken,

I am sorry, I might not have been very clear in my first reply to you. The RadEditor ASP.NET AJAX is a product from Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX. It is not a part of Telerik Reporting.

The idea is to use the RadEditor which will convert the Word document to HTML so that then you can use it in our Telerik Reporting through the HtmlTextBox.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
