Tabular reports are created using IViews with the help of  SQL statements .  Each of the column in the SQL result can be controlled using the column properties.

Some major features of IViews are :

  • More than one SQL result can be related into one IView result. This helps in rendering complex reports that cannot be achieved through a single SQL.
  • An IView result can be grouped to provide summary reports.
  • Sub totals can be set on any IView column to display the results as different blocks with a heading and a total for each block.
  • Drill downs from any column can be defined in an IView by defining the name of the next IView or TStruct.
  • IViews once defined provide options to print, preview, export to excel, save as XML, CSV, PDF and HTML.
