Alternative to Microsoft Access – Part 2

September 1, 2012 Leave a comment

To follow up on the first blog post about Microsoft Access, here is some more information.  Access has a limitations regarding the following that Sunset Reports does not:

  1. Page size (Access is limited to 22.5″ width, no limit with Sunset Reports)
  2. Export password protected PDF’s (Access does not, Sunset Reports does)
  3. Chart types (Sunset Reports has more types than Access)
  4. Style Sheets (Access does not have style sheets, Sunset Reports does)

So if you want to use Sunset Reports as an alternative to Access, we have made it even easier for you to convert since you can import your report designs from Access (with some limitations).

Even if your data is still in Access, Sunset Reports connects to that data very easily.

When you are using the print preview screen, you can choose how to export the report.   But if you want to set the report design to have the options associated with the export predefined, you will use the Report Properties window in the Report Designer to set the options.
