Error description

  • If I design a report with an image link, and this link contains
    characters that are invalid for a URL, the image will appear in
    all formats except Excel 2007.  The Excel 2007 format requires
    the image URL to be properly escaped.  This is inconsistant with
    the requirements for the other formats, and frustrating since
    there is no indication of a problem anywhere except that the
    image simply doesn?t exist.  We don?t even get a red X in the
    output to indicate an invalid URL
    

Local fix

  • Rename images to remove invalid characters
