From RDLC to Microsoft Word Layout (Part II)

In the previous blog post, I shared how to speed up your Classic to RDLC reports transformation by using the FREE Express version of 1ClickFactory’s Classic to RDLC report transformation tool. In this post I will use the same example, show how you can easily create a word layout from RDLC, also how to get a report with both RDLC and Word layouts.

NAV RDLC Reports: Using Dataset for Totaling Value Fields

Seeing the Dataset of a report can be very helpful, because it shows all values for every Data Item‘s column in one table. It‘s useful to export this table to Excel and, with the help of filters, see how particular values are calculated. 1ClickFactory developers found this less time-consuming than adding test messages to the code of test controls in Layout.

Stop Wasting Time & Resources Upgrading Classic Reports

Upgrading NAV Classic Reports to RDLC is tedious, requiring you to sacrifice valuable development resources to a low margin project.  These upgrade projects typically take the most development time but make the least return on development resources.  It is no wonder many Dynamics Partners try to avoid upgrade services all together.
