I know this might sound strange, but I'm in the process of doing an ASP page that will output a report in a particular format. Think of it as an ASP form that generates a certificate or an invoice.
Now the quickest and cheapest option seems to be to output this to a HTML-created page, but is this the accepted norm to generate a new page/tab as a HTML-generated report? I just think it should be outputting to something like PDF or Word, but I think techie-peers are clouding my judgement when I should look to offer HTML, PDF or RTF(??) as an option.
Does anybody else generate a report as a new page/tab? Any probs with this?
