This option is only available for customers that are running on-premise since it requires access to the filesystem of the server hosting SpiraTest, SpiraPlan or SpiraTeam.

If you open up the folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\SpiraXXXX\Reports

There will be files called MsWord2003.xml and MsWord2007.xml

If you open these up into MS-Word 2003 (or later) you can edit them and save them back into this location. If you change the document header, footer, add a table or contents or make other format-specific modifications, they will be reflected back into the system.

Note that the two files are in two different formats:

  • The MSWord2003 file is stored in MS-Word 2003 OfficeXML format and needs to be saved in that format.
  • The MSWord2007 file is stored in MS-Word HTML format. You need to save the file as an .HTML file and then rename the file extension to .xml.
