It is possible to report your model data to RTF reports, to Word, Excel or PowerPoint. For the RTF report you can report multiple models at the same time, but if you want to include more than one model in your report, the models must have the same metamodel. 

On this page:

Generating an RTF report

  1. In the model browser, select the model(s) you want to include in the report.

  2. On the File tab, click Publish > Report.

  3. Optional: A dialog appears indicating the location where the report will be generated. Click OK.

  4. In the Generate Report window, specify all relevant settings for the report.

    If you have selected more than one model for reporting, the window is named Generate report for multiple models, and the Diagram tab is not available.

  5. Click Report.

  6. If multiple models are included in the report, enter a name for the main page of the report, and click Continue.

The report is now generated.

About the generated RTF report

The generated RTF report can be opened in today's most commonly used text editors like MS Word.

Table of contents and index

The generated table of contents and index in the report should be updated after being generated. This can be done by selecting all contents (Ctrl+A) and then executing the "update fields" function in Word (F9).

Report order

The order in which the elements in a model or diagram are reported, for example the order in which actions are listed in a documentation table, follows the order of these elements in the model itself.


The RTF report is saved in the designated folder, in a sub-folder rtf. This sub-folder contains a file filename.rtf. If the RTF setting Link diagrams as separate files is selected, this folder also contains the diagram images from the model as separate files (.EMF or .WMF).
