Last week at Directions EMEA, Claus Lundstrom and I had a parallel session which was a pitty because we both had interesting messaging around RDLC Reporting. Fortunately we both had a good number of attendees who got what they came for.
While my presentation was primairaly about converting Classic reports to RDLC2005, Claus told his audience about the future of reporting in NAV "7".
There are some important things to understand from Claus' session
1. Classic Reports are discontinued
2. NAV "7" uses RDLC 2008
3. NAV "7" upgrades from both Classic AND RLDC2005
4. NAV "7" enables creating datasets
5. NAV "7" will have better looking reports
6. We can count report usage
7. Getting more curious?
Start exploring RDLC TODAY! And start converting those reports. There is no extra effort to redo them with NAV "7" other than maybe some simplyfication where the header and footer are concerned
Will it allow us to design reports like Sales Invoice, with continues line till the bottom of the report.
