I have a requirement to generate the report in .txt format. I am using BIRT Runtime 3.7.1.
how can i achieve this?
Thanks in advance
You would need to write a custom emitter to output the required format.
This link describes the process in some detail, https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/ba-birt-emitter/
The link describes it for XML, but the steps should be similar for text format as well.
The important thing is that it illustrates the extension mechanism and interfaces/classes involved in writing a new emitter.
