Reporting wizard for end users


We want to add a simpler reporting wizard for end users.

Actually the way to customize a report is opening the print format window - and this is not a very usable option for end users.

So, the wizard must behave like this:

  • Show the print formats associated with the actual report (based on a table if is a report button of window, or based on table/view if is a menu report)

  • Allow the user to change things from the chosen print format - or create a new one based on this as template

  • First thing is to display the fields and allow user to show via flags the fields to show on report

  • After the user select the fields to show an order tab is presented to allow the user to sort the fields

  • Then the sort criteria tab is shown allowing the user to choose how to sort the report

  • Then a list of the fields used for sort is shown allowing the user to select fields for grouping

  • Then the list of fields is shown in a grid to allow the user to select for each field if user wants a Sum / Count / Min / Max / Mean / Variance / Deviation

After this last step the print format is generated, saved and run

There must be buttons available on each step to Save and Run the report
