The Reporting Problem

I sympathise with you concerning the relative neglect of Linux as a
platform. Does Quartam Reports not work on Linux? I thought that Jan
was going to release a Layout Builder for Linux?
But by keeping your data tied to the card model, I think you are
limiting yourself. From my understanding, you can certainly export a
CSV file from Rev and import that into a spreadsheet for further
formatting/analysis. However, from your description of the complexity
involved in your current reporting, it sounds like you need a better
way to access and manipulate the data. I think you would be better
served to keep your data in a SQL-database. The aggregation/grouping
functions in SQL would easily manage the reports you describe.
What kinds of things are you wanting to do in your reporting that you
currently cannot do?
