What do you use for printing reports / single pages???



Hello All,

I'm now getting into the reporting phase of my application development. I need to print not only continuous page
reports from a datasource (database, datagridview, listboxes, etc), but also some single page reports which the
content is derived from calculated variables, constants, etc.

I'm using VB.net Pro so CR seems like the answer, at least for the reports from the datasources. How about for the
reports using internal variables for those single page reports. I really don't want to purchase any additional
software packages.

My initial thoughts on printing were:

1. Print the "datasource" reports using CR.
2. Print the single page reports by calling Excel, plugging in the data on pre-formatted sheets. (The three users
of this app all have Excel.)

I guess my question really stems from my unfamiliarity with CR and populating its report with variables from vb.net?

If I can get away with CR only, that seems like the best solution, but I need some examples of the single page from
variables report.

All opinions welcome.

Thanks,

Hexman

I use CR for all of the reporting you have suggested. Instead of just
reporting from a datasource, you can also manually create a datatable
populated with your calculated variables and such and pass it to the
report from vb.net
