Easily create cross-tables reports with the Quick Report editor

A new step has been reached in 4D v16 R2 with the 64-bit Quick Report editor: the cross-table reports are now available!

As you probably already noticed, the new Quick report for 64-bit versions had been fully redesigned since v15 R3 to provide you and your end-user with a better user experience. After list reports which were available as the very first step, we are now moving forward and delivering cross-table reports.

It is now possible to:

  • Open an existing cross-table report or create a new one
  • Define the rows, columns and values to be displayed
  • Customize the header and footer with a title
  • Customize the cell (background & font) color
  • Use an alternate cell color
  • Define formulas for all rows and columns as sum, average, min, max, etc… in order to get the grand total
  • Save your report
  • Export your report to HTML or any text file format
  • Print your report

4D is offering you full compatibility with the 32-bit reports as you can open a cross-table report created on a 32-bit platform with the 64-bit dialog. You can also open with the 32-bit editor a report created using the 64-bit editor.

To enhance the user experience, the field picker widget allows you to quickly find and select the fields you want to use for your report definition:
