The report generator in Uniconta is a standard report generator from the company Devexpress. We have integrated the report generator, so it now is as a part of the Uniconta Windows client.
The data for the report generator is selected from the Uniconta API, which is part of the Uniconta client, and passed to the report engine. Now the Devexpress report engine formats the report and pass it to the printer or screen.
To create a new report, you can use the wizard; we have built, to easily create a report. Once the report is created from the wizard, you can edit it using all the tools provided inside the report designer. During the design phase, you can preview the report and finally when done, you can save it.
You can anytime edit the report and save it again. You can run it directly from the report designer. You can also use the Uniconta Menu Designer and integrate your report in the menu tree in the main menu. Then it is easy for users in you company, to find the report and execute it.
