Below is a replication of an extract from a recent newsletter from Accolade Publications. I could not share the message better, so will let it stand as below.
It seems that the most mis-understood part of Extender is the availability of the data entered in Extender objects (windows and forms) for use in reports. Report designers typically head straight for the data tables to find business information, build relationships, and place data on reports. When they hit those "named pairs" structured Extender tables, only the strong are successful. Many toss in the towel and complain about how difficult the data structure is and how hard it is to write reports against Extender.
Browse down to the Views section on the Extender desktop. Take a minute and create a view for each window or form. These views are true SQL views that re-organize the window table into a more familiar format. Each window or form is represented as a single line of data and each field on the window or form will be represented in the data structure, as if each form or window had it's own table in the database. These views can then be used like any other view, and exactly like a table in the database, to create reports using any SQL reporting tool.
