Custom Report Writing
Do you spend hours exporting data to Excel or some other software application to “clean it up”? Change the sort order? Add a new column of information?
Most database systems come with “pre-designed” reports, but frequently they do not adequately meet the organization’s unique reporting requirements. Organizations will spend hours trying to produce reports through another application, such as Excel, because the users do not have sufficient in-depth knowledge of database tables or custom report writing skills in a particular report writing application. Lack of knowledge of the tables where the data is stored, and entering data by hand, presents a great opportunity for error.
To successfully create a custom report, the end-user must identify the tables in which the fields they want to use reside, and then join these tables correctly. This is timely and frustrating for most end-users because it requires they understand at least some relational database theory.
