by David A. Studebaker | November 2009 | .NET Microsoft Open Source

In this article David Studebaker, we will review the components that make up reports. We'll look in detail at the triggers, properties, and controls that are part of NAV reports. We will study the Report Designer tools that are a combination of pure NAV (the C/SIDE Report Designer) and the Visual Studio Report Designer that is tightly integrated into NAV 2009. We'll create some reports with the Report Designer tools. We'll also modify a report or two using the Report Designer.

NAV 2009: Reports

by David A. Studebaker | November 2009 | .NET Microsoft

In this article by David Studebaker, we will review different types of reports and the Report Designer tools that are a combination of pure NAV (the C/SIDE Report Designer) and the Visual Studio Report Designer that is tightly integrated into NAV 2009.

Some consider the library of reports, provided as part of the standard NAV product distribution from Microsoft, to be relatively simple in design and limited in its features. Other people feel that the provided reports satisfy most needs because they are simple. Their basic structure is easy to use, and made much more powerful and flexible through the multiplier of NAV's filtering and SIFT capabilities. Some say that the simplicity of the standard product provides more opportunities for creative enhancement.

The fact remains that NAV's standard reports are basic. In order to obtain more complex or more sophisticated reports, we must use the Report Designer features that are part of the product. Through creative use of these features, many different types of complex report logic may be implemented. You can also use NAV reports to feed processed data to other reporting tools such as Excel or "third-party" reporting products.
