Report Writer is a .NET reporting library for creating and exporting SSRS, RDL, and RDLC (SQL server 2008 and above) specification reports. The report generator supports exporting reports to PDF, Word, Excel, CSV, PowerPoint, and HTML formats programmatically without viewing or showing. Allow users to encrypt and password-protect the exported documents and share them with other users. The control lets you use reporting features such as parameters, expressions, sorting, grouping, filtering, report linking, and hyperlinks.
Syncfusion Report Writer can export RDL reports published or deployed on SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) server.
You no longer require SSRS Report Server to export RDL reports. Export RDL and RDLC reports that are local or embedded in an application without using SSRS Report Server.
Export reports created using a built-in data source, business object collection, or data processing extension against any database or data source:
Export stylish and interactive reports created with SQL RDL reporting with standard data visualization, data region, and basic reports items:
Users can export reports with report parameters and query parameters. Report parameters are used to provide user inputs at runtime to modify the data presentation of reports. Query parameters limit the amount of data based on the runtime user input or default values.
Report Writer allows to export data region report items with grouping, sorting, and filtering. It is used to organize the data in report items such as tables, pivot tables, lists, charts, sparklines, data bars, gauges, indicators, and maps.
Export reports with simple and complex SQL Server Reporting RDL specification expressions that specify or calculate values for properties used in reports. It allows you to use expressions in parameters, queries, groups, sorting, code modules, filters, fields, collections, etc. The expression can use the RDL custom code, built-in collection, conditional formatting, and Visual Basic functions.
Use simple APIs to create RDL and RDLC reports programmatically in C# and change report item properties without using a visual design interface.
End users can silently print reports without viewing or rendering them in Report Viewer.
Encrypt and password-protect exported documents through simple property settings.
Users can change the default file format to any other file format that is supported by the selected file type. It includes APIs to set the formats before exporting the document.
Report Writer supports additional export layouts in Word and Excel export formats to eliminate the tiny columns, rows, and merged cells. The benefits of the layout are:
You have control over all behaviors of the Report Writer to provide the best experience to your end users through a rich set of developer-friendly APIs.
