Hi All,

Do you dream about adding a feature to Valentina Reports that would help improve your solutions? Some irritating bug got you down that you'd like us to prioritize?

We are listening. How can we make Valentina Reports better?

I had added an example report at https://www.valentina-db.com/en/discussions?controller=attachment&;task=download&tmpl=component&id=931 . There is a header, then I have a table with database fields. The bulk of the report is a html database field which can span multiple pages.

As I thought I couldn't find in Valentina Studio how to create a report - again. Something to get started is missing. The wizard wasn't too bad.

Hi Trixi,

1) Multipage html support

Explain, please. You talking about HTML inserted into report using control?


2) Do you have idea how this can looks?

1. Multipage html support.
2. A less confusing workflow. In the beginning I was looking for "Create new report". I doubt I can remember after 2 weeks or so how to create a report.

Unfortunately, these changes don't help in such layout.
They can work if there is only one region with variable height.

Are there a lot of reports of such kind?

I recreated a similar report with one Page Body region and two subreports (layout.png).

To set the minimum height of this region a rectangle (148.5 mm height) was added.
Vertical margins of the report are set to 0.

draw_borders property is unchecked on the last screenshot.

Hi Trevor,

I'm testing the changes for this task made in the latest version.

Hi Trevor,

It looks like a different task. Without a subreport, it would be easy to do.
We'll check how to do it with subreport.

Anyway, it looks like each record is printed on a separate page - do you have 'new_page' option enabled for the group header?


Any progress on how to do this with a subreport.

I've tried to do it without a subreport before, but it didn't come out right.

What about report Rows. Columns are currently supported.

I have 1 report that I have to run in MS Access cause it will allow 2 reports on a page using rows.


This is what I was asking for earlier in this discussion.

Hi Sergey,

Thanks for your reply.

I tried using the 'Right' value for column_layout and it messed up the report.

The 'Down' value displays the report correctly but doesn't put a second record on the bottom half of the page.

Column_Layout_1 - shows the output I'm currently getting.
Column_Layout_2 - shows what I'm wanting it to look like. One at the top and one at the bottom.
Column_Layout_3 - shows my report Layout

Hi Trevor,

It is necessary to change the value of column_layout property to 'Right' to get the layout you attached earlier:

Column1 Column2
Record1 Record2
Record3 Record4

Hi,

I see that in version 9.7 the 'Column_Layout' property was added to allow for multiple report results to be layed out on a page. I have just tried it out on my report and it doesn't seem to work. The results I'm hoping for is attached below. Top half of the page one record and Bottom half another record.

Hi Guys,

in v9.7 (beta 10 uploaded) we have made the feature "Printing records horizontally, from left to right "
http://valentina-db.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=valentina:releases:9.0:9.7

In the GUI added just one option to choose between horizontal or vertical fill.

You are welcome to test this in 9.7 betas.

Another one from my wishlist:
I wish to multiple-select the parameters of one report, right-click, select "Copy" then paste it to another report.


Hi Dale,

Igor has implemented this in 9.6.2, which is on the site already.

Hi Dale,

About Excel - can you add an example of the report that you would like to save to Excel format?
Is it for additional calculations? Or printing?


Sergey, it is usually a tabular kind of report, the most common. Both for calculation and printing. Thanks!

Hi Dale,

I have re-read, it seems you mean EXPORT from Valentina Reports to Excell and Word?


Yes, Raslan, many of my clients want to export my app's reports (made in Valentina) to other formats, especially Excel so that they can beautify it more to their liking.

Hi Dale,

By the way, a good idea -- also can be a conversion of other reports - formats
