I would like to generate word reports on the web server. My web host does not have office installed, and from what I´ve read it´s not recommended to use word on the server.
Now, I just recently found this out, and I more or less counted on the reporting stuff being quite simple to set up.
This is what I need.
The user logs in and uploads data, changes it, calculates it and so on. When this is done he will need to generate a report, allthough preferably in a format he can edit (like maybe adding a comment or a logo or whatever).
How do I do this? This really needs to look professional so features like page breaks and other kinds of formatting is needed.
edit: It is sufficient if the document is generated and not opened on the server. I think I can require the user to have office installed locally in order to actually open the document and maybe print it. But the content must be generated from the sql database.
