    We're working on something in those lines ourselves. Open source and well tested (our teachers are using it right now). I'll post more info when I know when our launch event is.

    Ive designed our own reporting system, integrates with pheonix gold, web based asp pages and ms access databases. And a nice autoit application for the secretaries to print the reports.

    works well and has been well received.

    If you're looking for a primary school report writer my school started using Report Assist a couple of years ago. It took a little while to get used to, as with anything new, but in general all the teachers think it is a great time saver and the finished reports look really good. Hope this helps

    One of my schools uses Anthony's program (well the original version when he was at Applepanic) as a replacement for Report Assist and they are quite happy with it.

    (And so am i 'cause I really, really dislike Report Assist!)

    And his product support is second to no-one

    regards

    Simon
    PS The original program was a bit (i.e. completly over the top ) overzealous with its copy protection but I don't know if the latest one is the same

    Hi Simon, I thought it was you.

    I've posted to you in another thread. Anyhow, you will be pleased to know that I have changed the method of protection - its much more user friendly than it was before.

    Are you going to BETT in January?
