I'm considering returning to RS after a number of years away. In my time away I've not done any programming (other than from time to time maintain an Access database - which I developed/created).

The Access database I referred to needs to be upgraded from 2003 to Office 2010, maybe 2013, admittedly, I'll need to re-visit code but it should not be a problem to upgrade. Years ago I did consider converting the front-end to RB but was not viable (my opinion - my abilities at the time) due to the lack of a reporting module.

Now preamble over and done with. Is there a database reporting module whereby reports can be produced where all the usual report elements (lines, rectangles, headers, footers etc.) can be produced? If so a link to an appropriate page would be appreciated. If not, what is the general process to handle this?

Cheers,

Steve.

But the reporting is nowhere near access's reports.

I have about 60 pages of explanations with reports when using Microsoft Access with Real Studio in Windows in my book which can be purchased for a small fee. These examples use Microsoft Access as the backend and use the Real Studio Report Editor. There are about 25 working examples.

Feel free to view the Table of Contents: http://scispec.ca/Realbasic/Publish/Publish.htm

Happy to help,

Eugene
