    Hi,

    a lot of applications here a made with access. Tables, forms, reports
    and the like. Now i rather use Python to do this but i'm not sure how to
    proceed. I can use wxPython for a gui via wxGlade for rapid testing and
    design (forms), MySQL as db (tables) but the report part is what's
    bothering me.
    The only semi easy way that i see is by making html files with the
    results in and then opening a browser to display the result.
    But this would lack nice printing as there is no way to cleanly start a
    new page.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks,
    Benedict

    Hello,
    You can use wxwindows (http://www.wxpython.org/) which have some very nice
    report classes.
    If you want to know more, you just have to download and try the demo.
