Hi,

I have to study related to the Reporting Tools (such as Tableau Reporting tools).

I believe the activities of a reporting tool are:

-      Sorting
-      Grouping
-      Summaries

My question: I can imagine only the above 3 activities; would somebody mention other activities (if any) please

Thank you

A reporting tool is an application that allows  user to take raw information (records from a recordset) and produce useful information such as an invoice, shipping label, sales report, course roster, etc
