Hi, I'm new to Delphi. I'm probably biting off more than I can chew. Have some experience with Java and C++. I wish to develop a reports module to query a firbird database. I;m not quite sure where to start. I was wondering if anyone had a tutorial for the same or a demo of similar to get started from?

    You can use a nice free component :

    Depending on your version of delphi 7 you may use crystal report

    drop a report component (quickreport) on a form.
    drop a queery on the form.
    link your quickreport to your queery.
    Link your qreport components to respective queery values and
    place them on proper bands...and then
    call  qreport1.preview on button click or whatever.
    Then you can preview only or you can print it as well...

    Delphi 7 has no crystal reports.
    D7 comes usually with Rave.QuickReport also ships with Delphi 7 but must be
    compiled individually.
