Ask any questions you have about purchasing R&R ReportWorks. Will it work with my operating system? Will it access my database? Can I convert my old reports?

R&R will show you any tables or views for which you have SELECT privileges.____Each report will use a single data source but that data source can make multiple databases available to you depending on the driver/platform.____Kathleen__R&R Support

I might want to have my tables in one database and my views in another. In this setup, would R&R be able to use them both? __
With R&R SQL V9, which includes Rapid Runner, we solve several problems at once, including reports across multiple MS SQL Server databases, or across MS SQL server, Oracle, Access, etc. Batches of data extract reports can be placed in a Rapid Runner report ^set^ and run in sequence, saving their raw data to DBF tables, in essence building a data warehouse on your PC. Each extract report can be generated separately or as a batch, depending on the context.____Then, using R&R xBase or SQL (xBase for more robust linking than SQL language allows), you can produce the final report. It^s actually a very simple, flexible process that is more dynamic than writing SQL Views, are easily reuseable or modifiable, require no code, and can even do some processing to the data in a non-production environment.____We feel this is, by far, the most efficient and flexible method of turning raw data into useful stuff. We do this all the time with our clients and they love it -- low cost, quick turnaround, no excuses.____Dan Levin__President
