MetaReport allows you to build any reports: from simple data retrieval to complex professional reports. Using MetaReport you can easily create reports from data stored in Access or Paradox database as well as from Oracle or MS SQL database servers. MetaReport supports most data source formats: Access, dBase, Paradox, MS SQL, Oracle, InterBase and others.
Next time you run a created report, it will be with one mouse click and save report results into a specified format. MetaReport supports exporting to many popular file formats: TXT, WMF, HTML, RTF, XLS, PDF, CSV.
You can specify report parameters using a simple dialog box before generating.
For developers: you can easily integrate MetaReport with your application using the ActiveX object.
Main MetaReport features:
Data access. While accessing data, MetaReport uses the ADO (ActiveX Data Objects) and BDE (Borland Database Engine) technologies without the need to have BDE installed. In this case, MetaReport can access the database with only using ADO.
Powerful designer allows you to create quite complex reports to meet nearly all requirements.
The report parameters dialog box allows you to specify various parameters of data retrieval without modifying the report itself. To create a dialog box, MetaReport has a visual constructor.
Saving results in various formats. MetaReport supports exporting to the following file formats: TXT, WMF, XLS, HTML, RTF, PDF, CSV (comma-separated text).
The built-in ActiveX object allows you to easily use MetaReport in your applications created in any development environment. At the same time, MetaReport will work with your application as a whole.
Locking the report designer allows to protect ready report projects from an unintentional change by an inexperienced user.
