0001 # KReport - a framework for the creation and generation of reports in multiple formats
0003 ## Introduction
0005 The KReport framework implements reporting functionality for creation
0006 of [reports in MS Access](https://support.office.com/article/e0869f59-7536-4d19-8e05-7158dcd3681c)
0007 style. They are also similar to [SAP Crystal Reports](http://www.sap.com/solution/sme/software/analytics/crystal-reports/index.html)
0008 and [FileMaker reports](https://support.claris.com/s/answerview?anum=13754).
0010 Reports can be created interactively and programmatically. They can be previewed on screen,
0011 printed, and saved in a variety of formats such as HTML, PDF and OpenDocument.
0013 Reports of this kind offer a way to view, format, and summarize the information.
0014 For example a simple report of contact phone numbers can be prepared, or a more complex
0015 report on sales for different products, regions, and periods of time.
0017 A report is often filled with information from a database. There are many use cases:
0019 * The data can be displayed, summarized, sorted and grouped
0020 * Totals can be computed and displayed
0021 * Single or multiple records of data can be placed on a page
0022 * Details for individual data records can be placed in a layout
0023 * Labels can be created
0024 * The various report sections, such as title, header or footer, can be sized to suit
0025 * Reports can be generated on demand, thus eliminating saving them in files for further use
0028 KReport is a part of the [KEXI project](http://www.kexi-project.org).
