FOREST HILLS, NY (PRWEB) March 31, 2004 -
Â Software Forces today announced the immediate general availability of .rpt Inspector 2 Professional Suite for Crystal Reports. Designed for use with Crystal Reports 5.x through 10.x, .rpt Inspector 2 Professional Suite simplifies a Crystal Reports userÂs / developerÂs life by giving them the ability to access all of the Crystal Reports objects (and each objectÂs property), set location, convert driver, verify database, modify and standardize parameter default values, modify and standardize formulas Â across one or multiple reports at the same time. No longer does a report designer need to open each report individually and apply the same set of changes to each objectÂs property Â one at a time.
.rpt Inspector 2 Professional Suite has over 100 new features and additions throughout the product. Including sub-report support, a new dockable and floatable interface, report lists, search and replace (with regular expression support), a new data source / database conversion and migration wizard Â with ODBC/OLE DB/Native Drivers (DB2/Informix/Oracle/SQL Server/Sybase) that has support for batch set location, conversion, and verify database. Plus support to copy default parameter values from one source to multiple destinations and product wide support for ODBC/OLE DB/Native Drivers (DB2/Informix/Oracle/SQL Server/Sybase). And a lot more, a more detailed list of changes is available at: http://www.softwareforces.com/Product/ri/pro/2/ri_announce_v2.htm
"The response to .rpt Inspector 1 was incredible. With .rpt Inspector 2 Professional Suite, weÂve improved performance, incorporated lots of user requested features, added many that we did not have time to incorporate in to version 1, and at the same time developed an even more powerful foundation. This is truly one of those tools that every Crystal Reports user / developer must have in their arsenal. Our beta testers were hooked. Opening hundreds of reports at the same time and making changes across all of them at once. Feedback was that they were able to do in 2 days what would have normally taken them 3 months.Â said Gennady Kleyner, Software Forces product manager.
ÂÂ just finished some major work with 1060 reports I've been converting for a new release of our software. .rpt Inspector saved me about 3 weeks worth of work! Well worth the money. I changed countless formulas to be standardized within reports with little effort. What I have been putting off, and estimated to be at least 2 weeks worth of tedious work -- I completed in just 3 days!
Without .rpt Inspector, manually changed fonts in all 1060 reports about 2 releases ago and just to test .rpt Inspector, thought I'd see if I missed any. Sure enough, in about 15 minutes, I discovered and changed 2600 objects that had been missed in 1060 reports. I was able to find 130 reports with a common object that needs changing in a matter of minutes.Â said Danette Gray, Optx Corp.
