Get Started with a Free Trial

Flexible and Extensible Platform for All Your Reporting Needs

ActiveReports helps .NET developers design accounting, analytical, budget, risk analysis, scientific, calendar, scorecard, insurance, healthcare, clinical, stock analysis, and other business reports for their applications.

ActiveReports Page Report

Page reports let you create reports with fixed layouts. Use them for structured reports like invoices, statements, prospectus reports, and tax forms.

ActiveReports RDL Report

RDL reports let you create flexible layout reports that flow across pages using tablix, charts, and other data regions.

ActiveReports Section Reports

Section reports, similar to Access reports, let you use code-behind or script to respond to events during report generation for customization that is difficult with other products.

Visual Studio IDE Integrated Designer

Design reports right in your Visual Studio 2010+ projects. ActiveReports is integrated into the Visual Studio menus, Property window, toolbars, and even IntelliSense and context-sensitive help.

Customizable EUD

Customize the End User Designer control to embed report design capabilities into your product. You can make it wizard-like or free-form, all in your controlled environment.

Data Sources

Use wizards to create reusable connections to ODBC, OLEDB, .NET, XML, Web Services, Data Objects, and runtime data sources. Use multiple sources in a single report or share one source across reports.

Report Server

Quickly deploy reporting for multiple customers with built-in support for multi-tenant deployments and extensible role-based security.
