The report creation wizard will not launch for me when I try accessing it from both the View menu and from an attribute table. I am able to open a saved report template though. This seems like it is a Windows 7 issue since the wizard does launch under Windows XP. Or it could be a 64bit vs 32bit issue.

This has been reported in the ArcGIS blog Working with Reports in ArcMap, Part I-Getting Started.

I actually ended up doing the task using Mail Merge in Word 2007. It was so easy to format it together from an exported attribute table - I'd definitely do this again, even if I could get the report wizard to work.

  • Are you running on the same machine or is there any other difference between the XP and Win7? For example 32bit/64bit? Oct 17, 2010 at 7:52
  • good question, I should have mentioned that before. XP is 32bit, Win7 is 64bit.

Works for me on Windows 7, so this suggests it is something specific to your environment and not a bug in the software.

Not too sure on how to troubleshoot further.

  • Would you look at that... hmm... here I was thinking it was OS specific. Thank you for trying it out.

  • 64. Although I can also vouch that it works on 32 as well.
