Visual Studio to Link to Reporting Tool

Microsoft Corp. and Seagate Software Inc. will announce this week that Seagate's Crystal Reports reporting tool will be more tightly tied with Microsoft's Visual Studio.NET suite of development tools. Tim Lang, director of strategic alliances at Seagate, said that in the upcoming version of Visual Studio, Crystal Reports will be integrated into Visual Studio's shell. As a result, developers can build reporting capabilities directly into Windows applications, Web forms, and Web services. The integration of Crystal Reports and Visual Studio will enable users to drill down into data that is displayed on a Web page, then pivot that data to get exactly the information they want, said Dave Mendlen, Microsoft's lead program manager for Visual Studio.
