Quick Reporting Tool - Developer Module

Developer’s Description

Quick Reporting Tool is a simple and user friendly SQL query tool built for SQL developers to create SQL query with or without parameter for the end users to execute and export data efficiently from database to file. The SQL query with parameter(s) will prompt for “user input criteria” when it is executed. Quick Reporting Tool consists of two modules, i.e. Developer Module and End User Module.The Developer Module is for developer to create database connection (using ODBC or OLE DB Provider), as well as to create, edit and save the SQL query into an encrypted query file so that the end users are able to execute it in the End User Module. Users are also allowed to run the query by passing command line parameters to Quick Reporting Tool’s Developer Module to perform scheduling in Windows Task Scheduler

What’s new in Quick Reporting Tool – Developer Module 1.0.4:

  • Added “Insert Parameter” button and “Parameter Assistant” screen. Now users are allowed to create the parameter using GUI. To open “Parameter Assistant” screen, just click on the “Insert Parameter” button.
  • Bug fix for “Undo” and “Redo” function.


Quick Reporting Tool is an SQL query builder that aims to be as intuitive as possible, allowing database administrators to create queries and end users to execute them with ease. The Developer Module of Quick Reporting Tool can help its users set up a new database connection and build SQL queries that can be then executed using the End User Module.

Write SQL queries to execute later

Each time Quick Reporting Tool – Developer Module is launched, it prompts the user to select the desired database connection. A new one can be configured in two different ways: either by creating a UDL file and configure it in the Data Link Properties window using am ODBC or OLE DB Provider, or by inputting a connection string into a text file.

Quick Reporting Tool displays all the database tables and their fields in a user-friendly interface, which also comprises an area dedicated to writing the SQL query. Aside from the ‘SELECT’ statement, one can use other SQL statement in a query, such as ‘INSERT’, ‘DELETE’, ‘ALTER’, ‘UPDATE’, ‘TRUNCATE’, and so on.

Execute SQL queries and export them to file

There are 25 parameter types that can be used in SQL queries created with Quick Reporting Tool. The documentation describes them all in detail, providing usage examples to help out users get acquainted with the application. Furthermore, these commands can be used to schedule new queries in the Windows Task Scheduler.

Resulting SQL queries can be executed within the Developer Module of Quick Reporting Tool to see the output, but there is an option to execute them to a delimited text or Excel file that can be then shared with others.

Reliable SQL query builder

Together with the End User Module, Quick Reporting Tool – Developer Module is a powerful SQL query creation and execution tool. It can connect to any database via an ODBC or OLE DB provider and retrieve database entries that match the criteria in the SQL query.

Results are displayed in an organized manner, inside a table, and users can export the data to a file for later reference and sharing with end users. A big plus is that the query file is automatically encrypted, so as to prevent unauthorized modifications.


Quick Reporting Tool – End User Module Description

Quick Reporting Tool – End User Module is for user to execute the SQL query created from the Developer Module. In order to prevent the actual SQL query created by the SQL developer from being modified, the query file has been encrypted and the End User Module has disallowed user to create or edit any SQL query.Whats new in this version:
