DW | Reporting Tools

There is a wide variety of reporting requirements, and whether to buy or build a reporting tool for your business intelligence needs is also heavily dependent on the type of requirements. It isn't difficult to retrieve data. You could write code to loop through record sets and print them in your Windows or Web application. In the .NET Framework, you could go further and bind that data to a control, such as a Repeater, DataList or DataGrid.
