Reports from Access


#1

Hi !

Your examples is based on access reports so do you have some kind of application to read report metadata from access-databases and create xml/xsl/.net files which aspose.pdf can “eat” ? Or do I have write them with my own hand ? :frowning:

Hi, Jason,

Please elaborate…


#3

well well well,

for example, in aspose.pdf demos there is report called catalog. Aspose.pdf use two spesific files to create pdf:
- Demos\xml\catalog.xml
- Demos\Aspose.Pdf.Demos\Catalog.cs

Do you have some application which creates these two files based on report ‘Catalog’ in Microsoft Access database ? Or have you write them from scratch ?

I mean if I want to create pdf-reports from my_own.mdb, how can I do it ?

Hi, Jason,

Thanks for the additional information.

All the c#/vb/xml files in the demos are created by hand, instead of using a tool.

I know what you want. We will provide more database-friendly methods which will enable you to import data from databases more easily.

Currently we plan to implemment ImportDataTable, suggested by http://www.aspose.com/forums/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1134.

Will that work for you? Would you like to suggest more?

Thanks for your contribution.
