DDH Software Announces HanDBase Reporter for
Palm OS & Pocket PC Handhelds

Wellington, FL (PRWEB) July 23, 2004

DDH Software, Inc. today announces the release of its newest HanDBase add-on product, HanDBase Reporter for Palm OS and Pocket PC.

Many HanDBase users have been looking for a report writing application that would allow them to print their HanDBase information directly from their PDA. Using HanDBase Reporter they can now design and print custom invoices, patient records, sales orders, equipment logs, receipts, survey results or anything else needed, right from HanDBase.

HanDBase Reporter is a tool designed to allow the HanDBase user to create custom templates that will be filled-in with data collected and stored in HanDBase, when printing via an infrared, Bluetooth, WiFi or a serial port connection. The templates may contain typesetting information such as italics, bold, centering, tables, lists, etc.

“We created HanDBase Reporter for our vertical market clients in the Healthcare, Service, Auditing, and Sales fields, to name just a few, to be a practical solution for printing mobile reports. Most of our clients purchase our HanDBase software as a solution to collect data out in the field. The idea of enabling them an efficient means for printing custom reports, invoices, and the like is just a natural extension of what their already doing with HanDBase,” said Paul Hoffman, DDH Software’s VP of Sales.

HanDBase Reporter comes in two pieces: Report Templates Manager and Report Templates Printer. The first is an application that allows the user to design templates using an integrated editor; all templates in the device can also be administrated in that same program. The second is mostly transparent to the end user; it becomes active whenever a user chooses to either Print Record or Print Records within HanDBase. If multiple report templates are available for the active database, the user is given the option of which templates to use and then the printing begins.


Currently supported platforms are the Pocket PC (Microsoft Windows Mobile 3.0 and above, on ARM based devices) and PalmSource PalmOS (version 3.5 and above). Reporter includes all the software components for either of the platforms to function, which includes printer drivers developed by Bachmann Software from their PrintBoy Enterprise Edition.

The user that will be creating the templates should have basic knowledge of HTML (HyperText Markup Language). Database development and data type knowledge of HanDBase is required.

     PalmOS version 3.5 and above.

     At least 400KB of free RAM on device for basic installation.
