Hey Jerry,

I think you would need to get some form of data provider that returns info from Oracle...  You can display data like that from what I've seen.

And I found where on the page it talks about data providers:

Reports can use any of the following data sources:

  • Any component that implements IEnumerable, including System.Array, IList, ICollection, and BindingSource
  • Any component that implements IListSource, including DataTable and DataSet
  • Any component that implements ITypedList, including DataView and DataViewManager
  • Any component that implements IDbDataAdapter, including SqlDataAdapter and OleDbDataAdapter

I'm going to be using an oracle stored procedure to return the data but what I want to know is there a control that can display the data on it's side and if so which one?  Any documentation?

Thank you for your reply.

Hello Jerry,

As Serrin explained, our Reporting tool does not have its own data layer and depends on the standard ADO.NET providers for this. More info on the available report items which are used in our reporting offering is available here.

Steve,
Can I download these controls as demo or do I have to purchase them?
On that link it said "report item components that are placed in the report designer", what or where is the report designer. 

I'm sorry if I'm not catching on.  I've never used 3rd party controls and i'm trying to understand everything.

Thank You
Jerry

Hi Jerry,

This is not much different in any Reporting solution out there - there is always a designer allowing you to work with the report sections and the different report items are there to help you build report content. They are not separate controls. Our advise is to go through the help documentation to understand what a report solution is used for, if you have specific questions - check our forums and KBs which most probably already hold the answer you're looking for.

Best wishes,
