You have multiple options to desing the output format: choose paper format, create headers and footers, use single or multi column layout, group data hierarchically, accumulate values, compute formulas, print page watermarks - and much more.
A comfortable pint preview shows you the output in the form it will be printed. You can zoom the preview and you can navigate through all pages even if you have thpousands fo them.
You can access your database directly. Or you can pass data in a file. Waimea Report understands some usual data formats.
