Interestingly enough, a really good solution would be Hypercard AND Reports
DataPro.  This combination can easily make and print almost anything you
need in the way of forms - but only on a Mac - OS 9.

This is exactly the point I've been trying drive home to the people at
RunRev - i.e. that an EASY TO USE reports generator is absolutely essential
to the widespread USAGE of the Revolution environment.

If you need info about how to get in touch with the people who still sell
Reports DataPro feel free to contact me again.
