A report writer made for the software developer.
Visual Reports is the first report writer that gives the software developer
a comprehensive way to create and generate presentation quality reports within their software application.
The software developer designs a report using the interactive designer,
then programs the printing aspects of the report within an IDE environment,
such as Visual Studio or Visual Studio.Net.
The software developer is responsible for providing the application data needed to produce the report and
has full control of the report properties and methods using a COM interface.
Most report writers in the
market today create reports by doing the following:
- Connect to a database via DAO or ADO
- Building SQL query string
- Generate report with a header, detail, footer or possible some group sections.
Everything works fine if all you need are simple reports that come
from single DAO or ADO data source and require no special logic for
generating the report.
Report writers in market today are
deficient in the following areas:
Multiple data sources
Report sections are processed where the data may came from varies data source,
such as ADO, XML or a even proprietary database library
When rules dictate the following:
what is printed on a section, which section should
be printed and if a section should even be printed.
Control of printing
Which field and section should be printed.
Visual Reports solves the deficiencies found in today's report writers
Visual Reports solves the deficiencies found in today’s report writers by giving the software developer a
full access to the report properties and methods. This allows the software developer to have full control
over the report generation.
