How do you create business reports with Lazarus?
« on: December 08, 2018, 07:20:13 pm »
Hello:
I will be building a "Loan" and "Accounts Receivable" program and am wondering how people create reports.

Example: Monthly Loan statements, past due statements, accounts receivables listing etc

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Rob.

You could use the components lazreport and/or Fortesreport.
Lazreport is already in your lazarus system, just install the package lazreport.lpk, Fortesreport can be installed via Online Package Manager (which is also in your Lazarus system but has to be installed just like lazreport).
OS: Windows 10 (64 bit) / Linux Mint (64 bit)
Laz: Lazarus 2.0.10 FPC 3.2.0
       CodeTyphon 7.2 FPC 3.3.1

I'm using commercial FastReports 5 and it's fine.

I use LazReport for such tasks.

It's very mighty but sometimes a bit tricky for complex reports.

FastReports is even better but commercial in most cases.
Mint 19.3 Cinnamon, FPC/ Lazarus Trunk 64Bit

I know this is old, but are you using the VCL version of FastReports, and if so, how bad was it converting them? Thanks.
