LS, I'm searching for the best way to create reports that can be altered during runtime by the end-user. The process of changing column-order, sort-order, which data is contained in which column, which datafields are visible etc. should be done by the user via a GUI form designer which stores the report settings, or via an own written program which via for instance COM/OCX directly influences the report, based on some stored settings. I've taken a look at crystal decision and *believe* that the situations I mention above (the report alteration) can be done via COM. Yet I haven't got the hands-on experience and I'd like to hear the experience of those who have worked with this product. Are there any similar products to crystal reports? Are they superios/inferior to it, and if so, on which features? I'm using NetCOBOL/PowerCOBOL version 7. I'm aware of the existence of PowerFORM, but this product doesn't offer runtime adjustment of reports created with it. Thanks in advance and kind regards, Rik Hendriks --------------------------------- Don't think you are, know you are.
