Hi, I'm an information systems techie who loves a challenge. And when that challenge brings out the best in software, even better! Plus, I also like to share. [Note: all data used/displayed within my report screen prints is fictitious]

  1. Roll Call with Extra Column

    "Yes, we know Progresso can easily take registers, but we want a paper version because we've not given our teachers access yet."

    A good point made here, and Progresso's roll call maintenance feature makes quick work of bulk entry from the completed forms.

    Also, because this question came from a primary school, we added the option of an additional column to be included (such as Lunch choice).

    It consists of 3 tables, the 2nd and 3rd being a summary by gender. By clicking on the + you can expand or shrink each table.

  5. SSRS + Widgets = Dynamic Desktop

    by , 14th April 2013 at 10:00 AM (The Progresso Geek)
    After 2 days of training in SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) I have now written my first report.
    I wanted it to be useful but also to keep it simple what with it being my first venture into SSRS. As any of you who work with school's MIS databases will know the many different types of data that is recorded, so I decided to go for a report based on learner data.
    Also, I love the fact that you can place these reports within a widget on a users desktop. So as soon as a user logs on, ...
