Re: Please Advise : Reports from a Database

Martin, Thank you for your reply. The reason I am looking at using Applescript is that it is possible to include applescripts inside a RealBasic application which means (I hope) that I should be able to action a script from an application button and use NWP as a report generator for my database. At ...

Re: Please Advise : Reports from a Database

Martin et al, I am trying to automate my report generator and would like to create a document in NWP using Applescript. I have managed to create a new document, then add some text and then insert a table. I am now stuck as I have not found a method of writing text to the cells of the table. My scrip...

Re: Please Advise : Reports from a Database

Martin,
Thanks for your reply. Since I first posted I have discovered that NWP "prefers" Tab separated files and that these convert into tables rather well. I have rewritten my export code to export the data with Tab characters, now all I have to do is learn how to write NWP macros.

thanks

Please Advise : Reports from a Database

Hi, I have a small database application written in Realbasic. One problem is with the application (and RealBasic) is that producing reports is difficult. However, it is simple to produce a text file and I have been experimenting with CSV files. I would like to be able to import these CSV files into ...

Re: Desired NWP1.2 Features

I need a WP that allows me to write a document in portrait format but include pages in landscape within the document. Nisus allows this but there is a bug when printing which means that it does not work. The landscape pages often contain tables that span many pages, the ability to specify a header r...

A book About Perl ?

I have just purchased NWP and I think that I might wish to create some scripts (Applescript, Macro or Perl) sometime. I know nothing of Perl but notice that Martin uses it in some of his scripts. Amazon list many books about Perl so which should I buy?

Setting Styles based on attributes

Hi All, I have just started to use Scrivener to put my document/s together and I am looking for a Wp to act as the application to "publish" the final copy, with headers and footers page numbers etc. The documents I am writing are computer test scripts and have three or four "style" types e.g. Step h...

Thank you for the replies - I have no idea what a "floating text box" but it does seem that these are causing the problem. Is there any method (work flow) of converting the document into a format that may be read by Nisus? I guess that this could be a question for a MS Word forum.

Thanks

Simon

Problem with MS Word import (.RTF)

At present I have trial versions of iWork Pages, Mellel and Nisus Writer Pro installed to see how they handle documents originated by MS Word.
