Hi All

I would like to know whether there is any documentation available for the WYSIWYG Report Writer in ARIS 7.1?  I see that many people use it to do reporting, but I am unable to find any documentation to show me how to use it.  I have a few reports that I would like to write and it seems quite easy to do in the WYSIWYG Report Writer, but I have encountered a few problems, especially around formatting output when I want to export application system object to Excel to analyse my application portfolio (see screen capture below).  As an example, I am trying to export the description attribute, which contains linefeeds and messes up the Excel spreadsheet and I also am trying to export some date fields, but this is a problem, as the ARIS and Excel date formats do not match.  Is there an easy way to do some formatting?

I have been told that some of what I am trying to do with WYSIWYG is only possible with scripts, but I also could not find much information on scripting, except for the little bit in the method help.  Is there a manual or something that explains how to do this?

Any help would be hugely appreciated.
