Web Report Writer

The Web Report Writer fetches objects from the database and formats the information in the objects into a report based on a user designed template.  Once the template is defined it is stored in a report template library where it can be used to write the report at the users discretion.  To make a report template the user defines the name of the template and the table that is used to produce the report.  A description is optional.  They then specify the fields, their order and format, and which objects will be considered to appear in the report and their sort order.  They can store the template and print the report.
