Custom Report Writer eLearning

Course Overview

Have you ever had the need to extract data from the Payroll but could not do it in a single report? Have you ever wanted to compile your custom report? If so, then this course is for you.

The Custom Report Writer module is a tool developed by Microsoft, namely DevExpress, that integrates with PaySpace allowing you to create customised reports using real-time data from your Payroll and HR modules.

The Custom Report Writer module allows you to extract information from the data tables on the system, which ensures that when the report is run, the updated information will pull through to the report.

This course is designed to provide a beginner’s guide to creating custom reports using the PaySpace reporting tool. It will cover the basics of the report writer environment and how to create a basic report layout.
