What can we say about our report engine?
When designing Stimulsoft Reports.Net started we tried to make the report engine maximally powerful and flexible. But real power and flexibility our report engine has acquired after we started receive and realize requests, suggestions and criticisms of our customers. Thanks to our customers the report generator has powerful and rich functionality. For report creation plenty of components such as simple text components and compound special components (Chart, Cross-Tab, Container and others) are available. Using Stimulsoft Reports.Net, many difficult in realization earlier tasks are getting available and understandable.

What about the report designer?
We think that it is very important for the report designer to be quick and handy, because time amount spent for the report creation depends on it. That is why we make it more user-friendly. In our report designer, whole report is visually separated into pages in the report template. This allows you to see how elements will be placed on a page of a report. Our designer fully supports drag and drop. Full support of this technology allows you to speed up report creation. We have added plenty of wizards and editors to make changes of properties as easy as possible. Besides, in cooperation with our partners, we have fully translated the designer interface into 26 languages. This makes our customers’ work easier. Also, to make the clients’ work faster, special commands to create reports are available. We do not stop on what we reached and keep on making our report editor to be perfect!

How does our report engine work with data?
Any report requires data for its work. What does the Stimulsoft Reports.Net offer for you? Our report engine supports all types of ADO.NET. Do you need to get data directly from data server?

The SumIf(,) function is used to sum the data field values by a condition, and the CountIf(,) function is used to count the number of values in a data field by a condition. The first argument in these functions is the data field, and the second is the condition for fetching values.
