Building SQL Reports on the Fly

The first step of report building is to define the report type that would cover your needs best.

To start building a report you can:

Pivot Tables

Very often, we face situations when we need to analyze, and to represent a huge amount of data into a summarized report. To make it easier and more effectively, it is better to use pivot tables.

The Pivot table tool in dbForge Studio for SQL Server allows you to group and summarize your data in several clicks. With this tool, you can re-order and filter data by a simlpe drag, as well as sort data in an ascending or descending order and print out the obtained report. In addition, you have a possibility to view your pivot table as a chart that simplifies data comparison and vizualization.

Using Reports

When a report is ready, you can either print it, e-mail, save for future use, or export to HTML, CSV, PDF, RTF, XLS, XLSX, TEXT, and other supported formats.
