A new beta version (2.5b5) of db Reports from
ab DataTools is now available.
db Reports is a cross platform report writing application that works on Mac OS Classic, Mac OS X and any Win32 platform. With db Reports, you can extract, format and print data from one of various data sources, according to developer Aaron Bratcher. The latest beta version adds functions for MOD, CountFields, and NthField. Also, a fatal error in the limit dialog when removing the last limiter has been fixed
Depending on your computing platform, data sources may include: 4D Server 6.7, FrontBase, mySQL, ODBC, OpenBase, Oracle, postgreSQL, REALDatabase, and Valentina. Using the built-in assistant, or the drawing environment, a report can be built quickly and easily, Bratcher said. db Reports also supports data grouping and fully recursive expressions.
“String, Math, and Logical (including IF) expressions make db Reports a powerful tool for analyzing data,” Bratcher said. “REALbasic developers can print reports in their applications using templates saved by db Reports.”
A license for a single user is US$129. You can download db Reports 2.5 or the latest beta version (both are 2.1MB files) from the ab DataTools Web site.
