Full Featured Reporting and Printing Capabilities for Windows CE
Design and Print Reports, Invoices, Quotes, and Receipts

Cambridge, MA (October 22nd, 1999) - SYWARE, Inc., a leading developer of Windows CE, ODBC, and database tools, today released Report CE®, a full featured reporting and printing tool for Windows CE. Users of Report CE can easily create and print custom reports from any Windows CE 2.0 or higher based device (H/PC, H/PC Pro, and P/PC). In addition to creating and printing traditional reports, Report CE can be used to create and print invoices, quotes, and customer receipts.

Report CE works in conjunction with Visual CE®, SYWARE's popular database and forms builder for Windows CE, or Microsoft Pocket Access. Reports are based on tables built by Visual CE or Pocket Access. A single report may draw data from multiple tables.

Design and layout of reports is performed on a desktop or on a device. Reports can include a header, a footer, the data, and calculated data. They can be printed via the IR port of a P/PC device, through the print capabilities built into H/PC and H/PC Pro devices, or from the desktop. Filtering allows you to choose only the records you wish to view and columns can be sized for efficient, professional presentation. The data can also be saved to a text file enabling import to other applications.

Report CE can be used in conjunction with any 32-bit Windows based desktop, or stand alone on any Windows CE based device. It is sold as a separate tool for use with Visual CE or Pocket Access, or as part of Visual CE Enterprise Edition. Visual CE Enterprise Edition includes a royalty free license to distribute created forms based applications, databases, and custom reports. Significant discounts and money saving upgrades are available to current Visual CE customers. Report CE is shipping now. Please call for pricing. Dealer inquires are welcome.

Founded in 1990, SYWARE, Inc. is a leader in the development of Windows CE, ODBC, and database connectivity tools. The company offers a wide range of products including: Dr. DeeBee® Tools, Dr. DeeBee ODBC Driver Kits, Visual CE, Report CE, and SeriaLink (a Windows CE "keyboard wedge").
