I'm not sure what kind of reports would best suit my needs, but I don't want to increase the size of my software to much. My software is now about 1.6 MB download. If possible I would like to keep it under 2 MB. The reports should be able to addto (append to an existing report) - save - undo - edit - delete - sort - search records and also print. Please give me some examples so that I can incert them into my software. I'm a novice developer so please remember that every step of the procedure must be explained. Let me make my needs a bit more clear. This is NOT a data base that will reside on a server. the reports don't need to be bound to a database. It is only for users of my software so that they may create their own data base with the info they enter into my software. For example one software of mine is a Diamond Calculator. Well someone may have an inventory of hundreds or thousands of Diamonds. I want them to be able to inventory them with my software. To add (append) to or subtract, delet, sort, search or edit that inventory all from within the software. My software is already capable of saving all data fields on the vb form GUI interface as either a text or a document file. The problem is twofold. 1. Now when it is saved everything is straight up and down vertically without any tables or grids. Its needs a grid or table layout. 2. When I print the form data it also prints without a table or grid. Everything is vertical.
1) Need to be guided step by step on HOW TO with explantations. Working functioning VB examples with forms and code that will specifically to do the following: - The ability to view and modify records and to show totals in a vb form. - Some examples would be: The total Carat Weight of the entire Diamond Inventory. Total value of inventory. The ability to SORT by size - weight color - shape - clarity - price. add (append) - save - undo - edit - delete - sort - search records - move forward >> - backward << - Beginning - End - I don't care how the vb forms look. I can change the design to meet my needs, but I do need them to perform the above mentioned functions. 2) Will need to know what other dll's and or ocx files and dependencies will be necessary to include in the Installation package as the result of this project. 3) This project needs to be compatable with All winows 32 platforms from 95 through XP. 4) The software must perform as stated.
