Which type of report to use for .NET based development for a directory report

  • Siddharth1987 5 months, 1 week ago

    I want to create a report which has a directory format. I have used section reports for this earlier where I have a parent section report which has the pageHeader and pageFooter. I then place another section report (child section report) into the detail section of the parent. In the child section report I only have the detail section. I have also attached a sample of what I am trying to achieve. I basically want to know the best approach to make such reports. I want to make sure that section report is the best type to use for this purpose. Also, I am doing all the data bindings and report generation through code (Active reports with MVC5). And my report output format is a PDF file. I am using active reports 10.

    In ActiveReports, you may achieve your requirement using SectionReport (which you already know) and by RDL report also. Placing “Table” control with a grouping on Country field and by adding some rows in detail row would also help you to achieve your requirement using RDL report.

    I have attached sample RDL report and sample SectionReport too for reference.
    *Note: Do modify the datasource of the reports to bind it to the “NWIND.mdb” shipped along with the product.
