    Reportes A4

    Buenas, tengo una duda, a ver si podéis ayudarme.
    Yo siempre que hago un programa y he de hacer reportes en A, los gestiono yo desde código, pero ahora me encuentro con que necesito que le Usuario, pueda modificar el Informe A4 a su gusto , es decir que por ejemplo pueda mover un campo de la derecha a la Izquierda del formulario.

    ¿Qué programa me recomendáis para integrar con VB.?

    Muchas Gracias

    Hello, I have a question, let's see if you can help me.
    Whenever I create a program and I have to make reports in A, I manage them from code, but now I find that I need the User to be able to modify the A4 Report to their liking, that is, for example, they can move a field the right to the left of the form.

    What program do you recommend to integrate with VB?

    Thank you so much

    What file format are you using now for the reports? That will affect the recommendations. If you are creating the reports as Adobe .pdf files, then Acrobat or similar software could be used to alter them. Creating them in Microsoft Word format might be a better solution for easier editing, however, it will depend on what you are using now.

    Ok, sorry I didn't realize, thank you very much for modifying the post and providing the translation.

    Right now I usually make the Reports with PRINTDIALOG, but with this method, the client cannot modify them.
    For this reason I want to see another type in which the user can modify, I don't know if crystal report is the option or there is some other system.

    The standard windows print dialog can print to any device or file type. Which file type are you actually using. I assume that you are not just printing to a printer and paper. Crystal Reports, Adobe Acrobat .pdf files, or a Word type (.doc, .docx, .rtf) file, or a .csv or .txt file that could be imported to Excel would all work. It will depend on what you want the document to look like and what your client wants to be able to edit on the document. Without seeing a sample of the document, it is hard to advise on the available options.

    I do not show it in any type of document, from my project, it prints directly on a printer previously configured by the client, in A4 format, the report that I generated with print dialog, that is why I want to see, what I can use so that the client has a preview of the report, and you can also edit some fields of said report to your liking

    Re: Reportes A4

    OK, if you are just printing the report directly to a printer, the first step would be to get some information from your client.

    Questions to ask:

    1. What fields or other data (field identifiers, etc.) are they wanting to edit?

    2. Ask them if they are thinking that by editing the fields on the report, that data will also be changed in your database that the report is created from. It won't, but they may be thinking that it will.

    3. Ask them what software they are thinking of using to edit the report. This will determine what form you would need to supply the report in. If they do not know, then you may have a choice of how to save the report. They may need to purchase or download and install whatever the required software might be (Adobe Acrobat Pro, Crystal Reports, Microsoft Word or Excel, or something like LibreOffice, or just use Wordpad.
