Summary: Daily, monthly, or at any specific time, the manager needs to see a report about the items in the inventory. We need to be able to see all items, or items sold today, this month, this year... We also need to see the items inventoried today, this month...
For that we added some menu items to provide these features. I will walk you though some steps on how these reports are created and how their properties are set. Once you see couple of these reports, you will be able to easily generate the others.
I will create a report that shows all items in the inventory. We add an rdlc report to the solution. We change some of the properties, and we select the columns we are interested in from the dataset. After that, we add a form to the report, and a ReportViewer on the form. We make the report viewer fill out the whole form. Finally, we select the report we are interested in displaying.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
Technology Used: Windows Application and Visual Studio 2010
