Database including a report with repeated values


Changing group should reset the print repeated values

In the attached database, "Print repeated value on group change" property of the field "CleEV" is set to "Yes". This parameter is ignored.

The "Description and pictures of the bug.pdf" explains with screenshots but you can reproduce:
1. Open the attached database
2. View> Database Objects> Reports
3. Right click "Report" > Open

The report is generated. The field "CleEV" of the first record after the change group ("Classe") should display 119. The field is not repeated because the precedent record has the same value.

Platform: Windows 7/64 & Version:
Build ID: 93fc8832889bf050a10ec6d0171dae213adc9b55
Locale: fr_FR

Also reproduced (fr-users) on  Win 7/32  & Version:
Build ID: 48d50dbfc06349262c9d50868e5c1f630a573ebd

So I set status to New

I can't find any previous version with better behaviour than at present (, current 5.0 master)

-> Version: Inherited from OOo

(matters were improved somewhat by

    commit 7b8e9ea4f9645599f45f7e2f708bab2837dafd0d

        fdo#67937 "print on group change" defaults to TRUE
        Thus it needs to be saved when it is *false*.

but this seems to relate to saving rather than the behaviour of the report itself)

Dear pierre-yves samyn,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
