Features

Simple Forms makes it easy to go from raw data to a highly polished report!

WYSIWYG Reporting

Simple Forms is the true definition of WYSIWYG reporting. Whether you are creating a report, modifying an existing report or previewing it prior to printing, the document appears exactly the same as it will look on paper. You never have to deal with the innate complexities of a traditional report designer. There are no bands to set up and the endless switching between design and preview modes is now a thing of the past.

Powerful Reporting from a Text Editor

Simple Forms is powered by our Rich Text Editor and provides all the functionality you’ve come to expect from a powerhouse Windows editing tool. However, in addition to top-notch text editing capability, we have added a user-friendly report generation tool.

All core features of the Rich Text Editor (including automatic table of contents, character, paragraph and table styles, multi-column page layout, etc.) work seamlessly with the data manipulation features of our reporting platform. This marriage of a word processor with a report designer significantly reduces the otherwise steep learning curve associated with traditional reporting software and allows you to quickly deliver highly intuitive solutions that meet and exceed your highest expectations.

Integrated Report Items and Pre-Defined Appearances

Simple Forms ships with a powerful collection of report elements that no professional reporting solution can live without. From charts, to checkboxes, images to barcodes, all are a simple drag and drop away with Simple Forms. And of course, modifying the appearance of a report is a snap; a simple mouse click allows you to apply built-in appearances across your report instantly.

Extended Data Shaping

Ease of use is not limited to the straightforward and highly productive nature of Word-inspired functionality. The rich collection of data shaping options that ship with Simple Forms has been engineered to simplify the way you and your users will approach reporting going forward. You will have at your fingertips the ability to group, sort, filter, make summary calculations, populate calculated fields, specify report parameters, and format calculated data

Compatibility and Export

When using Simple Forms, you can open any existing TXT, RTF or DOC(X) file and quickly embed your business data as needed. In addition, Simple Forms provides support for all popular export formats, including PDF, IMG, TXT, RTF, DOC(X), and HTML.

Master-Detail

No reporting solution is complete unless it provides an elegant way to create, maintain and modify hierarchical reports. Simple Forms blows-away the limits associated with traditional sub-reports and makes it possible to generate even the most complex master-detail layouts with ease.

Multiple Data Sources and Side-by-Side Reports

So that your users can create combined reports, Simple Forms allows you to easily bind your report to multiple un-related data sources. And yes, side-by-side comparison reports are as easy to create as a standard table or a multi-column layout.

Automatic Corrections

Simple Forms supports automatic hyperlink detection and auto-correction of misspelled words. Any dictionary can be added by simply dropping dictionary files (*.dic and *.aff) into the Simple Forms directory. Dictionaries can be easily downloaded from www.OpenOffice.org.
