the beauty with a database is that you can query it in numbers of way to get a look at your data. And sometimes users are asked for a report that has never been created.
I wonder if there is some way to have users create reports without needing admin permissions (create layout etc.) ? In the past almost everybody had full admin rights and they created loads of reports that were not sate of the art. The systems are full of Layouts that are not used anymore.
So I am planing to remove access to layout creation, among others, but I would like to find a way for them to report data for viewing or printing, without having to ask someone to create yet another report.
I came across ccPivot, but you need to create External Data Sources etc, permissions that I will not give them.
