Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a report definition with a join condition and  one column of report definition pointing to the property used in join.  
2. Use the RD in a repeating grid source. 
3. Create a button with HTMLTOPDF activity to export the section in PDF format.
4. Observe that column with the property used in join condition is empty in excel sheet.

Root Cause

A software use or operation error. User was using section rule as parameter in activity HtmlToPDF for Stream name but it should have a reference to HTML rule instead of section rule.


Perform the following local-change: 

Create a HTML rule and use "

Then use the HTML rule name as parameter to export PDF activity.
