MPress key features include:
NSK Reporting Engine
The MPress report engine runs directly on the NSK system, and can print
to any network attached printer, the spooler, or to Guardian or OSS
files. Reports can be scheduled using NETBATCH to run automatically on
a regular basis.
Support for SQL/MP, SQL/MX,
MPress can select data that comes from SQL/MP, from SQL/MX, and from
Enscribe. You can also mix data from different sources in the same
report. It also means you can design your reports now using an SQL/MP
database, and migrate them to SQL/MX later. Or, you can design a report
now for Enscribe, and move it to SQL later. Changing the data source
from one type to another is a simple click of a button.
Laserjet and Postscript
MPress supports HP LaserJet, Postscript, and compatible printers. You
can use various font styles and sizes, italics, bold and color to make
your reports stand out. MPress also allows reports to contain Windows
bitmap graphics, so you can add logos and other picture data.
Portable Document Format
MPress can write output to Guardian or OSS files in Adobe(R) PDF
format. Because the MPress report engine runs on the NSK system, you
can use this facility to automatically generate PDF reports that can be
viewed with any browser on an intra- or extranet web server.
Visual Report Designer
MPress includes a visual report designer for designing reports. Labels,
graphics, and database fields are laid out on the page using an
intuitive interface. There are facilities to design reports with group
headings and footings. These can include aggregate data such as group
totals and averages. There are also facilities for constructing page
based reports like form-letters. The designer includes a print-preview
function, and can be used to print reports to any Windows attached
printer. The designer also includes comprehensive online help.
Run-time Defines and
Reports can be developed with default parameters and defines that are
then overridden as necessary each time the report is run. The reporting
engine fully supports the use of defines to access the database.
A Barcode is a visual component that, when printed, may be scanned and
read by scanners.
component contains a Value Expression. Each time the Barcode is
printed, the Value Expression is evaluated and used to determine the
Currently supported barcodes are:
Value Expression is a value calculated at run time. It can refer to
fields in the current data source record as well as constants,
aggregates, and built in functions.
- EAN (EAN13)
- Interleaved 2 of 5
You can use the Expression
Editor to build and edit expressions. The evaluated Value may be
optionally printed with the Barcode pattern.
