Creative Reporting Tools  

CRT is used by thousands of Clarion programmers to help them easily create and maintain the kinds of sophisticated and complicated reports needed in today's business world. CRT provides absolute control of break level processing, and many, many more features necessary to allow creation of truly professional quality reports.

With CRT you can easily create multi-sequence/multi-break level reports in a single procedure. Use the built-in View designer to define any custom view relationships and ordering you require, and/or drop in the LoopThruAssociatedFile template to provide child/grandchild file processing to infinite levels. Use the many drop-in templates included in the product to easily do things like: lookup and save/print multiple fields from other files; read/write/display/print images in blobs; filter reports with pick lists at runtime; print TEXT() boxes that automatically overflow pages when necessary; print reports from data stored in memory queues.
