Hi, I've been trying to change the default xls emitter for BIRT 2.6.2 in MyEclipse (borth 8.5 and 9) for the Tribix one because I really need images and charts into xls reports.

Since now, I've not been able to make it works. If I follow the steps describe on the Tribix site, I lose the "view as xls" option when I run the report.

However, I've been able to change this emitter using a plain eclipse reporting installation.

Did anybody already have the same problem and have a solution ?

3: Here is the link on how to install tribix:
Mostly: If you wish to use just the XLS emitter, download the and plugins and copy them to the plugins directory in your Eclipse install location. You will also need to copy them to the runtime location as well. For example, if you are using the WebViewer this will be the WebViewer/WEB-INF/Platform/plugins directory. You will also need to remove and plugins from both locations to replace the out of the box XLS emitters. Restart Eclipse with the –clean option and the Tribix emitter should work. No API changes should be required if you are using the RE API. New worksheets per page and image support should now work.

4: Once I've done the steps of point 3, I lose the following option:

You are deleting plugins that are part of the 8.6 install, which is why you are losing the option of export to excel.
Skip this step instead just add tribix plugins to MyEclipse dropins folder and restart the IDE. You should be all set.
