Visual Studio versus Report Builder
Both Visual Studio and Report Builder can be used to Design and Customize the RTC report of NAV. NAV takes Visual Studio as its default report designer but we can change the setting to take sql report builder as the report designer. Report designer is inbuilt i.e. Unlike Visual studio we don't need to install it. It is comparatively Faster but with some insignificant limitations. I personally prefer Report because its cool and fast.
STEP 1: Setting for Selection of Designer tool
STEP 2: Creating Simple Layout using Report builder
Lets design a new report with Dataset from Item Table.
Now we can Save the Layout and Run the Report in RTC Environment.
STEP 5 : Run the Report
The report design using Report builder is easy and with some enhanced feature. Its faster and smooth. It is only supported by latest version of NAV, for the older version of RTC we still require Visual Studio.
