This may sound strange but I'd like to start designing a report on paper before I approach a server. I graduated from Computer Program/Analyst years ago and I've been looking for a way to plan out a report before tackling the code. I'd also like to have reference material for my boss in case they don't extend my contract after July so its clear what the parts are that make up the report.
My Google searches return how-to's of making the actual report but very few with good planning to make the developing easier. Does anyone know of any good resources or something I'm not specifically asking for in my searches that can help me find information on planning my reports?
