Hello All,

I just wanted to get some input from the experts, what options are available for generating reports using PHP / MySQL. I can easily create HTML reports, but I'm thinking more along the lines of PDF reports, or some other format that is easily generated. Anybody generate PDF reports with PHP? Is it difficult? What custom classes (if any) did you use to create the reports.

Thanks in advance,

That is actually what I'm thinking of. I was meaning, general reports of what ever data you might be collecting. My problem isn't with collecting the data, more creating a useable output for whatever data you might be collecting. EX: I have a client that sells tickets to workshops they give. They want to be able to print a report of everyone that has signed up and paid thru the website. So I can create an HTML report but something like a PDF report is so much nicer.

Thanks for the responses.
