I''ve been tasked to locate a reporting product/methodology to support a.NET rewrite which will be replacing our VB implementation. The Visual Basic App. uses Data Dynamics’ ActiveReports 2.0 to render statements. I''d like to determine if your .NET product will meet the requirements for this migration. The VB app requires modifying the report designer files for each of our customers and anytime a change in a customer''s layout is required. In our new product we want to avoid these issues. Instead, we''d like to be able to include XSL/HTML tags in the data fields as required for ''corporate branding'' into a standardized report form. The report will be bound to columns in a SQL table to populate the Report header/footer, Page header/footer and Account header/footers (multiple detail bands each with there own header/footer). These common fields will then be bound to the control in the appropriate report band. For example, instead of having individual controls for a transaction date, description and amounts in the detail band; we want to store all the fields which make up the detail lines including formatting tags in one field and then bind them to a single control in the detail band of a standard Statement Report Form. Can your product do this? Where would your product be used as part of the solution? (e.g. can it take the output from the Crystal reports version distributed with .Net) I hope this makes sense if not let me know what I should clarify. Thanks for your help with this project! -michael

Hi Michael, Thank you for your interest in Essential PDF. I am afraid Essential PDF will not meet your requirements since we do not have a designer where you can bind to columns in a Database. Essential PDF can only help you in a scenario where there is a need to programatically create PDF documents from scratch in a .NET application. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks. Best regards, Stephen. >I''ve been tasked to locate a reporting product/methodology to support a.NET rewrite which will be replacing our VB implementation.

Hi Stephen Could you please answer my pre sales question. I couldn''t figure out how to create a new question on this forum hence my reply to this thread... I have a PDF stream from SQL Reporting Services ...is there any way of intercepting this stream (without needing to turn it into a physical file) and manipulating it with your product ie. watermark, encryption etc, before it gets sent to the client as an updated stream? Thanks Phil

Hi Phil, Thank you for your interest in Essenial PDF. Unfortunately we do not have support for doing that in the current version of Essential PDF. Since the pdf stream is already generated, Essential PDF does not have any API to work with it. Thanks. Best regards, Stephen. >Hi Stephen > >Could you please answer my pre sales question.
