From: Aaron Bratcher (
Subject: [ANN] db Reports 2.5.2 now available.

Immediately available for download at , this
release fixes some bugs:

– auto-sized expressions work properly
– current date (//) and current page(##) will no longer stop the
evaluation of an expression
– comma operator bug fixed. Expressions with 2 or more would sometimes fail
– a couple of smaller internal bugs
– REALbasic classes completely updated

Current users of the REALbasic classes provided with db Reports
should completely remove them from their existing projects and
re-load them with the newer ones.

Valentina Users:

Because version 1.8.9 of Valentina automatically alters the database
format **without warning**, this release of db Reports still uses
Valentina version 1.8.8r5. In a few days I will re-release db Reports
using the newer version 1.8.9r7. I am sorry for any inconvenience.


A “report” is the output of data from some data source that can be
something as simple as a purchase receipt or an invoice to something
longer and more complex like an inventory listing or school grade

db Reports is a report writing application. With db Reports, you can
extract, format and print data from one of various data sources*.

Using the built-in assistant, or the easy-to-use drawing environment,
a report can be built quickly and easily. db Reports also supports
data grouping and fully recursive expressions. String, Math, and
Logical (including IF) expressions make db Reports a powerful tool
for analyzing data.

*Depending on platform, data sources may include: 4D Server 6.5,
FrontBase, mySQL, ODBC, OpenBase, Oracle, postgreSQL, REALDatabase,

Because db Reports was made with REALbasic, REALbasic developers can
use REALbasic classes to make their task of printing reports from
their project incredibly simple.
