(PRWEB) January 7, 2005
Calgary, Alberta, Canada STEP FORWARD Software Inc. has released its SCRIBEÂ Report Generator. The Personal edition comes with a free permanent license that provides a single DB connection. The Enterprise edition allows multiple concurrent connections.
SCRIBE can produce reports from one or more relational databases, e-mail the reports as HTML-formatted body or PDF attachment (or both), publish them over the Web in HTML or PDF format, schedule them for periodic background execution, extract data from the database(s) and export it into an ASCII file, connect reports in a cascading drill-down fashion, and enforce security based on a user access mask.
SCRIBE is based on graphical programming concepts, allowing the users to define the process of retrieving data from the database tables, performing the necessary calculations, creating pie, bar and line charts, and formatting data for printing - all in the form of an executable graphical flowchart. Printing is done through WYSIWYG page layout forms (print templates).
In addition to reporting database data, SCRIBE can also update database tables by inserting, updating and deleting rows, using graphical flowcharts with database-editing components.
SCRIBE is written in Java and can be deployed on Windows and Linux platforms. Its functionality can be extended by adding custom Java code; third-party Java applications can run reports programmatically using the Scribe API library.
SCRIBE is a Trade Mark of STEP FORWARD Software Inc. and is distributed world-wide by Gestalt Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of STEP FORWARD Software Inc., and a member of Mi Group of Companies providing software development, data processing, and consulting services to a wide range of clients in Canada and the USA since 1970.
