Hello,

I'm looking for some generic advice here, not necessarily a specific technical recommendation.

We have a requirement for about 15 different reports/forms. The reports would be the same layout using the same datasets, with the exception that they would be sorted, grouped, and sub-totalled differently.

Using Adobe Livecycle, can we design one form, and then control its sorting, grouping, and sub-totalling behavior somehow (maybe via parameters passed to its interface)? We do not need to allow user control over these various differences.

I know something like this is fairly straightforward in tools like Crystal Reports, but is it possible and practical using Adobe Livecycle? We would probably want to avoid a solution that uses overly complex and abundant Javascript.

Are we trying to use Adobe for something it's not really designed for?

Thanks!
