NOV 2013

New XFRX version has been released (14.7) with native export to Word documents

The new version comes with a new Word output type both in standard and flow-layout modes. This is a pure FoxPro implementation - no third party component is needed, particularly the Microsoft Word application does not need to be installed.

  • Faster generation: this output type is significantly faster than the current DOC output type
  • Easier setup and enhanced stability: No COM dependence makes the application independent to external factors like corrupted word installations, "frozen" word exe's, etc.
  • Suitable for web applications
  • Users will not need to install the expensive professional Office suite to generate Word documents from your applications. The generated documents can be opened in all Office suites, including the click-once option.
  • We have also tested that the generated DOCX documents can be opened in Apple's Pages application.
The generated documents are equivalent to the standard word documents generated by XFRX and can be opened in Word versions 2003 (with a plugin), 2007 and newer. The output type codes are "NATIVE_DOCX" (standard) and "NATIVE_FDOCX" (flow layout).

NOV 2013

New XFRX version is out - 14.6

This is a bugfix release that, among other bugs, fixes the intermittent Word freezing. We were able to get it fixed completely in Word 2007 by shuffling with objects z-index, unfortunately, they did something in 2010 and we couldn't make it work unless we save the output as docx. So from now, if you select the "DOC" or "FDOC" output type and you have Word 2010 or 2013, XFRX will generate the output as docx. We have also added two new output types - DOCX and FDOCX - that allow you to generate docx with Word 2007 as well.
