Vista 7 brings exciting enhancements to all aspects of internal
reporting, including improved usability and functionality. We’re proud to
announce we now support SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) in addition to our
existing reporting solutions. Vista 7 also now supports exporting to Excel from
SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS)
Vista 7 has the capability to interface directly with SSRS. These reports can coexist on the reporting menus alongside your existing Crystal reports. (See Microsoft’s primer: What is SQL Server Reporting Services?)
Export Via Edit Dialogs
Vista edit dialogs now allow you to easily
export data to Excel.
This gives you the freedom to capture and present data in a
sortable, editable report format on-demand.
Our Analytics module now features enhanced
graphics and charts for a fresh look.
Improved functionality comes courtesy of new resolvable
keyword support, which allows for dynamic chart titles. We also have several
powerful SQL-based functions to streamline your development efforts.
Enterprise Server & Crystal Reports
Vista 7 continues to support Crystal Reports. New
functionality includes the ability to edit report properties directly through
the reporting menu. Meanwhile, our processing engine, Enterprise Server,
remains a reliable choice for HTML-based reporting. It can also be used to
automate the processing of Crystal reports.
