    Printing a report based on a database


    I am really confused as to how to make this work:
    You will only print the first three records from the database table.
    The following fields will be printed. You must print them in the following order:
    Date
    Telephone Number
    First Name
    Last Name
    Customer Number
    The report title is “Contact List”. You need to also print the current date here.
    You will also need to setup column headings for each field being printed.
    The report will be double spaced.

    How am I going to print a report like this if Visual Studio 2010 doesn't come with any report building tools? I'm not too fond of third-party software either.

    Visual Studio 6 VB included a report generator, I have the Enterprise version so perhaps the report generator isn't included in all editions. Check the msdn website for more information about what's included in your version of VS.

    There are many 3rd party report generators, but they probably are not free.
