Calvin Hsia: : Creating a quick report from any cursor

Calvin made a post about using the CREATE REPORT xxx FROM command , a tool which I've used numerous times and is extremely handy for quick reports.

What Calvin didn't completely note was some of the added features with that.

CREATE REPORT dummy FROM test FORM - creates a form instead of a column based report - GREAT for coming with with screen output for single records

CREATE REPORT dummy FROM test FIELDS custno,custname,street, address - lets you specify exactly what fields and the order

CREATE REPORT dummy FROM test WIDTH - lets you even specify individual column widths

No - it's not a replacement for a good report writer but it is a good start.

But Calvin's post also discusses outputting it directly to HTML using the new VFP 9 Report Listener options. Very cool.
