Designing data report
The first step in automation of the data report production cycle
is creation of the data report that can be used in the command line or Windows Task
Scheduler in the future.
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 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 data source, adjust 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,
this way overriding the same ones specified in the *.rdb SQL report file.
To make report creation using the same file a routine, you can
schedule the corresponding task in Windows Task Scheduler. This
way creating and sending a report will not take any time at all - you'll just have
to reap fruits of the nicely done work and let your authorities enjoy comprehensive
and professionally-looking reports.
