    Default Report writer

    Hello

    Can anyone tell me whether you can buy the Report writer for V12 desktop?

    We have a ITT where end users need to generate their own reports.

    Kind regards

    You may have the ability for them to do that already.
    You can, I think, Give permissions for reports and a couple other things using runtime plus and think runtime plus is what they all are in v12. I do not utilize it so you may need to let others that have respond with facts instead of any possible guesses I would have.

    Try the advice in this thread. If it works in v12 then the runtime there supports it.

    There can be only one.

    You can also use Crystal Reports for one with alpha. Been doing it for years with an older version of CR that creates and exe. It will handle some that Alpha will not do.

    You can also find creative ways to use adhocview().

    Stan

    Thanks for that pointer.

    In the past I have sold R &R Reportwriter and Crystal to enjd users.

    If I have understood correctly I can within the A5V12 run time allow people to create and amend their own reports within the application.

    Kind regards
