Hi,

I've got a MySQL database and I'd like print beautiful reports (the report is a shop catalog). Like in MS Access or the old Cristal Report in DBase.

Do you know any tool for doind that (better if graphical)

Thanks a lot,

Joan

No, I mean a tool that let me print "beautiful" reports for my customers (in paper, of course). By now I've done an easy page:

http://www.delaterra.net/botiga/catalog/llistat.php

But if you print it, it doesn't look very nice...

When I worked with MS Access, I can easily do pretty reports (each category in a new page, pretty headers and fooders, etc.). I want do that with MySQL. I don't know if is there any tool for doing it... Do you know?

Thanks a lot,

Joan Cervan i Andreu

ok,
I didn't get it :)

You've got the PDFlib library --> You can create pdf docs

I've never used it.. so I can't help you.
If you find something interesting share it with us ;)
bye!
