    Reports

    Can anyone point me to a good tutorial / lesson (or even a book) on using
    reports with VB6?

    I need to run Access-like reports as well as single-page invoices and I just
    don't know where to start.

    Is this easier with third party tools / components?

    Thanks!

    Re: Reports

    You will first need to figure out what report tool to use. Will Access be on
    the target machines? Is it reasonable to spend $400 on a tool in your
    scenario?

    Re: Reports

    No, Access will not be on the target machines. $400 is reasonable if needed.

    If by Access-like reports you mean you've already developed reports in
    Access for this app and / or are comfortable with the Access report designer
    I love the VS Reports utility from Video Soft (for +/- $165). You create
    your report in Access and VS Reports converts it to their format (a .vsr
    file) which you can use with your VB app using their ActiveX control. The
    utilities worked great and the documentation was very helpful. The website
    is www.videosoft.com
