Turbo Delphi 2006 Explorer question

Does the free Turbo Explorer edition contains a reporting tool like QuickReport / Crystal Reports / Rave... ?

If not is there a simple way to print text + images on the same page ?

Don't need something complex... Just need to print a charity receipt with some fixed header (with logo), customer data and donation total...

According to this link

http://www.codegear.com/article/34452/images/34452/turbo_delphi_feature_matrix.pdf

Turbo Delphi Pro comes with Rave reports.  If I am reading it right, the Exp version (I.E. Explorer AKA Free) does not.

I had to try the link a couple of times myself in order to get it to work.

Writing the reports yourself is an involved process.  Basically you can open a printer object and write to it's canvas and tell it to eject the page.  It is well worth the money (in your time alone) to get a version that comes with Rave.

Developmentguru is correct regarding thew free Turbo Explorer. I have installed it  and a good free report writer is FreeReport.

Easily installed and you can get it at:

Pretty basic yet surprisingly complete reports can be done.
