Track 3: Creating and Analyzing Ad Hoc Reports
Logi JReport features a powerful ad hoc reporting capability, which allows end users and business analysts to create ad hoc reports using predefined business views in the Logi JReport Server-powered runtime environment, and analyze the report data in Web/Page Report Studio. Data analysis is a process of evaluating data using analytical/logical reasoning. Business views greatly enhance your ability to discover useful information, draw conclusions and support the decision making process.
There are two types of ad hoc reports in Logi JReport, Web Report and Page Report. When creating web reports, you can choose from the following two ways: quick start way and traditional way.
- In the quick start way, a table report is created quickly based on the data fields you select in a business view.
- In the traditional way, reports are created using the Web Report Wizard which allows creating complex reports with multiple components in a tabular style layout, and also allows for company logo and titles to be placed on the top of the page for more formal presentation. Using Web Report Wizard the user can easily in a single pass create a multi-component web report, for example, a single pass through the wizard can create a tabular style report with a chart and crosstab followed by the detail information in a table.
