Our next generation Reporting tool, Clarion ReportWriter was designed to help you create easy-to-understand and visually beautiful reports in the shortest possible time. Use a Wizard-driven
user interface to select your fields and tables and use a
WYSIWYG editor to design your report. ReportWriter
creates an optimized report using the same database driver
technology as the Clarion development system, and it connects
to almost any data source.
The Clarion ReportWriter includes a powerful report creation wizard simplifing the process of creating and customizing new reports. The report wizard allows you to specify the data source from either your Clarion Data Dictionary, or any standard data source. You can apply grouping to specific fields, create summary fields, set sort orders, and more. The wizard allows a selection of several standard report layouts which you can use for your report.
The built-in Report Preview allows you to print your reports and export them as the most popular formats (PDF, HTML, MHT, RTF, TXT, CSV, XPS and MS Excel). You can zoom and scale your report, as well as apply an image or text watermark to it. You can email a report, search within the report, and you can preview your report as an HTML document.
You can use ReportWriter to print mailing labels, stickers, business cards, badges and labels of any kind. The wizard has a wide range of the most popular predefined label types - it supports AOne, Avery, Herma, Zweckfrom and many others (over 1500 in all).
ReportWriter provides support for creating multi-column reports, you can print either across then down (in rows) or down then across (in columns).
