Uniconta’s Report Generator is a standard report generator developed by the company Devexpress. We have integrated Report Generator into the Uniconta Windows client.
The data for theReport Generator is selected from the Uniconta API, which is part of the Uniconta client, and passed to the report engine. The Devexpress report engine formats the reports and passes them to the printer or screen.
Our wizard enables our users to easily create a new report. Once the report is created via the wizard, it can be edited using the tools provided in the Report Generator. During the design phase, users can preview the report and save it once it is complete.
The report can be edited and re-saved at any time. The report can be run directly from the Report Generator or, alternatively, reports can be integrated into the main menu using our Uniconta Menu Designer. This makes it easy for the other users in your company, to find the report and use it.
