Designing data report
First of all, you will need to create a data report template that can be used in the future -
either in the command line or in the Windows Task Scheduler. This will be your first step towards
automation in the data report production cycle.
dbForge Studio for SQL Server can help you create different types of data reports.
After you've decided what kind of report you need, you can open a blank report document
and design your SQL report from scratch customizing even the smallest details or
run the wizard. Both ways enable you to select the data source, adjust the report layout,
add charts, etc.
When the report file is ready, you can use it continuously to create SQL reports
and deliver them to the needed recipients by typing several lines in the command
line. It's also possible to specify additional parameters in the command line interface,
overriding those specified in the *.rdb SQL report file.
The same report file template can be applied many times to different tasks, making report
creation a routine. To do this, you can schedule
the corresponding task in the Windows Task Scheduler.
This way, creating and sending a report will not take any time at all - you'll just have
to reap the fruits of the nicely done work and let your authorities enjoy comprehensive
and professionally-looking reports.
