Has anyone had experience with generating printed form output files from Natural - these are forms to be generated and output to some form of storage media and then printed by some third party vendor. We are looking at over 1 million forms.
Performance and efficiency is obviously a prime consideration here.
What options are available in Natural for generating these forms - PDF files, XML, etc, and what might be the preferred approach?
Yes indeed. I have been using Natural Reporter with multiple files for quite a few years. No problems at all. You simply design your Report using “dummy” field names. Then you write a Natural program, with as complex logic and as many files as you would like.
The output of the Natural program is a Workfile, which is then used by the Natural Reporter Report.
