So, Here is the reporting tool your client and you looking for “Crystal reports”. It contains built in features that allow users to design reports easily. These features include templates, ready-to-use data drivers, and flexible charting capabilities.
You can browse through data, sort it, filter it, apply custom groupings and explore the generated reports, and share the reports through the internet or through a secure server, can access data from most widely-used databases and can integrate data from multiple databases within one report using Open Database Connectivity ( ODBC ) and much more.
Those are just some of my reasons. One thing though – That its not the complicated tool but the people who complicates it. So if you know how to exploit it then it will unlock a world in which you can only
astonish and say to yourself, “why didn’t I do this before?”
