1) Use a report writer. Rave Reports, QuickReports, QuickReports, they're all nice report generators.

2) Write your own report generator, walking through all the data you need and printing it to the printer. A helluvajob but very satisfying once it's done. Then another helluvajob if you change a field type in your table.

3) At you can find DSP75 which is the Data Structure Printer. This can print structures of many different databases. You need an ODBC driver for MySQL in this case, though.

procedure TApPrintChecksf.myTextSimple( myString: String; x, y: Real);
 PixX, PixY, Size: Integer;

 Printer.Canvas.Font.Color := clBlack;
 Printer.Canvas.Brush.Color := clWhite;
 Size := Printer.Canvas.Font.Size;
 PixX := Round((x + myX)* PrinterDPIx) - xMargin;
 PixY := Round(((y + myY) * PrinterDPIy) - (Size * 1.5) - yMargin);

 Printer.Canvas.TextOut( PixX, PixY, myString);

QuickReports is a commercial product and has been replaced by the Rave Report designer since QuickReports wasn't performing that well. QuickReports is still inside Delphi 7, though. Delphi 7 does not automatically install Quick Report components.

Here's what to do to get the QuickReports components on the Delphi 7 Component Palette. You need to install the QuickReports package (dclqrt70.bpl). In Delphi, select Component | Install Packages. Click Add and select the file dclqrt70.bpl (found in the Delphi7\Bin directory). Click Open and then click OK.

Quick reports are more trouble than they’re worth. After committing a lot of time becoming familiar with the components, it was found that column totals on tabular reports were incorrect.

We are now using “Microsoft SQL Reports Services” with a high degree off success. It is rumored that “Microsoft SQL Reports Services Version 2” will support none server environments.
