  • Hi,

    One more post, about the report writers:

    1. Are these 32-bit? I'm getting an error (both Report Pro 2 and 3), when trying to load the sql drivers, specifically for Excel. I've had similar problems with other 32-bit report writers, because my desktop has the Access 64-bit Engine drivers loaded. It does have some 32-bit odbc drivers of course, but I can't install the official Access/Excel 32-bit drivers.

    2. Is there a way to sort on calculated fields? So e.g. in the Excel spreadsheet source, there's an ID. The first 3 characters in that ID, are the abbreviation for the Agency associated with that ID.

    Obviously, we can just add a field to the spreadsheet that contains the Agency. But I'm exploring the features and limits of these report writers, and just want to know if variables are usable in sorting & grouping.

    T & R,

  • Hello,
    since I don't use ReportPro myself, I cannot answer about the sorting.
    But both ReportPro versions are 32 bit because they rely on the VO GUI classes, and they are both 32 bit only (they use a lot of pointers and other not 64 bit ready code internally).
