Everything that is needed to do a complete reports generator is already
included in Revolution.  Adapting Reports pro would:

Be a significant undertaking because of the huge number of enhancements
between Revolution and HyperCard

Result in a solution that only works on the Mac OS

The amount of work in doing that is going to be greater than writing a
native reports generator with a modern feature set in Revolution.  Such a
feature would then work on all platforms that Revolution supports without
any externals.  That¹s what we're doing.  And it won't be long now.

Kind regards,
