Give me some examples of reports you'd like

I'd like some detailed examples of reports that you'd like to see...or just send me Access reports you've created!

Re: Give me some examples of reports you'd like

Do you have a specific format you would like?  Is one of the available reports OK?

If I simply added a placeholder for a graphic...and put in your graphic if a specific graphic file can be located -- would that do what you want?

Re: Give me some examples of reports you'd like

Yes that sounds good......The available formats are great...... It would just be nice to add my own graphic on all printed pages or just the first page is good also. How about giving us that option aswell.... I use this program as my song books.....I love the way it prints the artists and the songs also....Thats the main reason I purchased this wonderful software.....

Re: Give me some examples of reports you'd like

How big are your graphics?

If I only gave you the size of that little yellow MP3 graphic -- is that big enough?  Or would you want your graphic to take the place of the full header?

Do you need to have the graphic at the top of EVERY page, or just the first page?

Re: Give me some examples of reports you'd like

0.607 (to be released soon) will have this feature, at least for the "Main" report.

For now, you just need to have a file named "report.jpg" or "report.bmp" in the MP3Boss directory -- the picture will take the place of the little yellow MP3 image.

Once you get the new release, I'd appreciate your comments...and let me know if I should add it to all the reports.

Re: Give me some examples of reports you'd like

Is it in the same directory as mpeg.mde and data.mdb?

For now, it only works for the "Main" report.

Do you see any change at all?

Re: Give me some examples of reports you'd like

Did you install v0.607 today, or are you still running v0.606?  Only the latest (v0.607) has this reports feature -- and only for the "Main" report.

If it still doesn't work, please send me a copy of your logo & I'll see what's wrong (perhaps the graphics drivers don't support something in your logo).

Re: Give me some examples of reports you'd like

I received your logo, and it works OK for me (except it is way too small because I don't give it enough space).

Could you try converting the image to BMP an see if the image appears when you have "report.bmp" as the file in the mp3boss directory?  The problem might be that I need to call a JPG driver instead of the embedded graphics drivers...like I do for showing the picture in the detail view.  It works OK on my system because Office installs some JPG drivers.

I was thinking that probably I should read the 'native' image size and then try to scale the logo as appropriate, perhaps reducing the size of the text title (when necessary).  Comments?

Re: Give me some examples of reports you'd like

Also is there any way I can make it a big splash across the page rather then just a small logo on the left?.... Do I also have to have MP3 Boss - By Artist /Title there?  I way hoping just to have my business logo on the top.....You can also include a mp3boss logo on the bottom so you can advertise also.....

This was just a first attempt to see what could be done...I'll think about how I can improve it.

Re: Give me some examples of reports you'd like

Next version will (for registered users only):

1) Use the report.jpg or report.bmp for any of the Main report selections (instead of the yellow mp3 image).
2) Won't rely on JPG office graphics support
3) If the image is larger than the yellow mp3 image, the text label will be hidden and the graphic expanded to full size.

Re: Give me some examples of reports you'd like

Thank you..... will this only work when the volume is shown or will it work when the volume is hidden on the main report?

Re: Give me some examples of reports you'd like

It should now work no matter what you select in Main...at least in my testing. ;-)

...but you'll be able to tell me in the next release.

Your logo looks good this way (in my testing).  I assume it is OK to have the logo left-justified (instead of centered?)

Re: Give me some examples of reports you'd like

I'm pretty sure the next revision will do what you want -- full size logo for all of the standard reports (wherever you get the little yellow mp3 logo now).

Once I add MD5 checking as an option to duplicates checking (much faster than bit-by-bit compare), I'll release the new revision.
