isMacroname doesn't execute on server with Word installed

If I run RPE from my desktop and specify isMacroname as an external variable with a default value = Word macro name the macro is executed after the document is published. If I run aRPE template from RRC the Word macro does not get invoked. I have Word installed on a Win 2008 server with a tomcat trial install type server setup (all in one). The rrdg.txt log file does not indicate that a Word macro was attempted.

The component embedded in RRC is not exactly RPE, it's called RRDG. Although they have the same core, I doubt that they have the same features and functionality. So what you have seen can be expected.

Donald,

Thanks for the reply. I was following the limited documentation here:

https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/RRCCustomRRDGReportsConfigurations#Supported_parameters

isMacroname seems to indicate that this is possible. If this is not supported it'd be nice to know for sure and it would be nice to know when it will be supported.

Greg
