Core Enhancements, Data Reports

Powerful SQL-based designer creates and runs reports against your Joomla! or other database from the backend and then makes them available within your Joomla! web pages. Packed with display and filter options!

Reports are generated using a powerful report designer which allows you to enter SQL queries to fetch data and then design a front end criteria page for allowing users to filter by selecting from database-driven list boxes, checkboxes, radio buttons and other controls.
Use the designer to create groups, group headers, group sums and trailers, charts and complex custom expressions by including PHP code within report definitions.
As well as HTML web reports, Reportico can generate data in PDF and CSV formats as well a sortable, searchable grid.

The reports you create can be embedded into your Joomla! website pages. Reportico allows you to control user access to an individual report or to a menu for a complete set of reports. It's also a great way to just publish a table of data within a page just by embedding the output of a report. If you allow your users login then reports can be configured to only return data based on their login id.

With knowledge of SQL, it is a quick job to produce a set of simple tabular reports. But with knowledge of a few features we believe it is possible produce your data in almost any way using Reportico. We at Reportico know many of these tricks and only too happy to share them. Once you need Reportico to do just that little bit more, you can drop us a line on the support forum or email us, details are on the web site.

System good functionality in producing stylish reports on Databases. Limited to a single database per project.
Ease of use
Very easy and simple to use. I created my first report in two days. User guide is very good but needs work.
Support from the developer, Peter Deed, is fantastic. Very accommodating and friendly.
Compared to many open source software, this was one is well documented with a full blown tutorial.
Value for money
Software is obtained by donation of minimum of US10. That is extremely cheap.
I used this to: For quick reports and too complicated as a report cannot access multiple databases.
It works as mentioned

Peterdeed doing great Job, i had to set up label pdf label printing layout and i amazed with his generous support.

Value for money
I used this to: I use this to generate reports with 10,000+ records and its work perfect.
I setup additional tables using Crosstech's Content Builder CCK for a non-government organization, which needed a super easy way to track & update data and print out reports based on this data. Content Builder CCK did the trick for the web-based data management system, but then I really needed a PDF printout function for this management team. Most of these people are not very computer savvy, so simplicity was a foremost consideration. After doing some research on the Joomla! extensions directory I came across Reportico. I set it up first as the standalone product, but then installed the Joomla! component. These are essentially the same, only the Joomla! version allows you to access the Reportico tool through he tJoomla! component menu. Plus the Joomla! version has a sophisticated module. I didn't need the module, at least with this project. All I wanted (and prayed for) was a link so the users could simply click and print. What is so wonderful about this tool is once you have it setup, you can copy and modify the XML files and drop them into your project directory and presto, reports are instantaneously ready to be linked to a menu or button or whatever design you prefer. I had more than 50 reports to build because each report displayed slightly different data. The initial report took me about 3 hours to create (query, formatting, etc), so you can imagine my dismay over the idea of having to create 50 reports. Reportico cut that time down to ~5 minutes per report. All I had to is copy the original XML file, and then search and replace particular tables (could be fields or tables), and then create links for the front end users to simply click and print. The PDF reports are dynamic and execute perfectly every time. The management team I built this system for could not be more pleased with the ease and simplicity of this reporting system. I could not be more pleased with how much time I saved. Not to mention there is so much more you can do with this tool. I'm incorporating it for all my projects requiring reporting, especially for users who need a PDF printout (which is almost always the case). I give Reportico a 5-star!
I downloaded the free non-joomla script for try-out and was fascinated how easy it was to generate any kind of reports or statistics from a given database connection. So I purchased for a little of 5$ the Reortico Joomla extension including the associated Joomla module. Installation was smooth as silk. With this extension I was able to embed statistics in table form and graphs of another third part Joomla directory extension, what I used as a base for a survey database and display it in a nice formatted way. You will need a bit time to find out all its possibilities and Peter, the developer, was giving such great support. Believe me after searching and trying so many different database report tools, I must admit it is the best available for Joomla.
