Using RBF
Report-By-Forms (RBF)
Report-By-Forms (RBF) is a forms-based interface for creating and producing reports from an Ingres database.
Using RBF, you can:
Produce a report immediately with the Preview operation
Create, edit, and save report specifications that you can use repeatedly to produce reports at any time
You can also create report specifications with Report-Writer, a command language release of RBF. With Report-Writer, you can produce more complex reports than you can with RBF, including conditional expressions, break control, and complex queries. For complete information on creating report specifications with Report-Writer, see the chapter "Using Report-Writer."
