    Crystal Reports :

    Crystal Reports is a popular Windows-based report writer (report generation program) that allows a programmer to create reports from a variety of data sources with a minimum of written code. Developed by Seagate Software, Crystal Reports can access data from most widely-used databases and can integrate data from multiple databases within one report using Open Database Connectivity. Crystal Reports uses an ActiveX control called CrystalReport to establish a connection with another program. A programmer can set properties of the CrystalReport control during design time or at run time.

    The programmer can use automation tools called Experts to be guided through common tasks, such as linking and embedding reports. Crystal Reports treats all text, graphics, and database fields as object s that a programmer can place, arrange, and format on forms. The program also generates a recordset object and code needed to perform programming tasks such as loop s or mathematical calculations.

    use Crystal Report in your project
