I had the same dilemma about generating reports. What I ended up going with
was to export the data into a XML file, which uses XSL transformation to
render the data.

What my program does is write the XML file out, and loaded it into a
CHtmlView in my application. Done.

The great thing about it is WYSIWYG. The same formating for the screen
worked for printing.

Hi all, thanks for all the great advice I've gotten here. Every day my


skills improve! Long way to go yet though...

I have an database app I created. It uses a form view with a list and


control, everything works well so far.

I want to have a way to generate a printable report, though. How best to
implement that? IOW, I could have a dialog w/ a rich edit cntrol for the
user to see the report, but I was wonder if there's a better way to do


I don't really need editing functionality, just a way to look at and print
the report, and possibly save it. How practical would it be to just


another View?

Hope I'm asking this clearly. TIA - again!!!!
