Astral Reports for Business Central is a simple to use yet powerful Excel based reporting tool, created specifically to extract data from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Now you have the ability to report from 'any table' and 'any field', straight out-of-the-box. Even custom ones.
The functions have been designed specifically for 'high level reports', such as Balance Sheet, Profit & Loss or Management Accounts. These are typically summary level reports that do not require vast amounts of transactional data to be extracted from the system. The functions utilise the 'Flowfield' technology within Dynamics 365 Business Central, and as such, each function is tuned to retrieve data from the system in an efficient manner. They do not attempt to perform complex queries using inefficient keys, and will therefore not place a large burden on the performance of the database server.
Once installed the functions will be visible in three places. Firstly a new 'Astral Reports' Menu Ribbon will appear on the toolbar, secondly, a new function category 'Astral Reports' will appear in the Insert Function wizard, and finally, the cell Right-Click menu will contain two additional options.
