Supported Report Formats

When the report-generation process first creates a report, it generates a DocBook XML source file. You can customize this XML as needed. For more information on how to customize DocBook XML, see the OASIS™ DocBook TC Web page at and the online version of DocBook: The Definitive Guide by Norman Walsh and Leonard Muellner, with contributions from Bob Stayton at

Next, the report-generation process converts the XML source to one of these user-specified report formats:

  • Adobe® Acrobat® PDF

  • Hypertext Markup Language (HTML)

  • Microsoft® Word (.doc)

  • Rich Text Format (RTF)

      Note:   RTF reports use placeholders (field codes) for dynamically generated content, such as page numbers or images.

      On Windows® platforms, to display that content, press Ctrl+A, and then press F9.

      On Linux® and Mac platforms, use the field code update interface for the program that you are using to view the RTF document.

Limitations for Report Formats

PDF reports only support bitmap (.bmp), jpeg (.jpg), and Scalable Vector Graphics (.svg). The SVG format is only supported for Simulink® models and Stateflow® charts.

For reports that use the Word Document format, you must have Microsoft Word software installed on the machine that you use to generate the report.
