MS access VS Crystal Report
Posted on 2008-10-21
I want to develop an application, this application will process information stored in database, these process includes inserting and retrieving data from the database, print result in tables and doing some calculation, also printing these data in predefined reports template, but also I want to give the user the ability to modify these report templates as he wants.
I have seen similar application developed in MS access but the user can't change the report format or structure, I thought may be crystal report can assist me doing it, I thought also doing it through a VB application and make it integrated with crystal report through its VB controls.
so what do you think and what you recommend me..shall I go to crystal report and develop a VB application on top of it? or shall I stick to MS access?
