Just to add another twist to this subject, SEQUEL from ASC provides a 
useful for reporting, data base administration and provides syntax for CL 
development.  Yes the green screen is not real pretty but ASC does provide 
a GUI front end version (I have not yet worked with this version).  This 
product is capable of outputting multiple file formats including Excel and 
directly to email addresses.  All these functions can be automated in CL 
and scheduled in MM or equivalent job scheduler.

Subject:        [SYS21] Reporting tools

The recent messages about Objects made me wonder about user preferences of
Objects, Crystal Reports, MS Access, etc. as a reporting tool.  We bought
Objects in 1997 and used it for a few years, but strictly use MS Access 
>From a developer's perspective, I find Access easy to use and we get 
decent performance.   Access is widely used and you can go to any bookstore
and find looks of educational materials.  Other than the pre-built data
dictionary that is available for Objects, anyone have reasons why they use
it instead of Access (or anything else)?
