New Report Engine Ramps Up MySQL Front-End Tool
DBACentral for MySQL 1.6 presents a Microsoft Access-like interface for executing database operations.
The update will enable users to work with printable data reports, which they can automatically create from within tables, views and stored queries.
Alternatively, the update comes with a wizard for quickly generating reports. For more complicated reports, it comes with a report designer.
DBACentral 1.6 has the ability to create report scripts in Pascal, Java, C++ and Basic. Users can incorporate pictures for static images or BLOB fields.
It also allows the user to develop custom dialogs for adding actions to the running of reports.
Users can use built-in viewing to browse reports, then print them out or export them into BMP, JPEG, HTML, XLS, RTF, PDF and other formats.
New features involving GUI forms and PHP-based Web pages include generation from stored profile queries or based on custom SQL statements.
