    Default Alternative to Report Designer

    Hello everyone,

    new to Pentaho, I am already a little disappointed about the way to create a report. It is a pain in the behind to create on. Even using the Report Wizzard, the final touches and extras need to be done manually..and that is time consuming. Isnt there another application that builds on Pentaho, but gives more "freedom" in building a customized report from scratch?

    Thanks
    alex

    are you looking for a tool that automagically knows what you want and builds the perfect report for you?

    maybe you can describe your problems a little bit more detailed

    Paul, I thought you were going to end that with:

    "Then you need PAT"..

    hehe, true .. PAT will be able to create OLAP reports at some point. but unfortunately it won't be able to read your mind

    I guess its time for a bug-report then:
    PAT (or PRD) does not introspect the user's mind to query report-generation parameters

    Look at the Pentaho ad-hoc reporting tool. It is designed for "end users" like you in mind.
