Implementing Jet Reports: Differences Between Versions of Jet Reports

Jet ReportsThere are three versions of Jet Reports available for Microsoft Dynamics GP. Jet Reports was founded in 2002 and is headquartered in Portland, Oregon, USA and has a presence around the world, including here in the United Kingdom.

The three versions of Jet Reports are:

  1. Jet Express for Excel - an extension included with Microsoft Dynamics GP gives users a simple way to create basic reports and business queries inside Excel.
  2. Jet Professional - fast, flexible financial and business reporting inside Microsoft Excel.
  3. Jet Enterprise - corporate analytics and reporting, anywhere.

There is a product comparison sheet available from Jet Reports which shows the differing capabilities of the three versions.

As mentioned in the series index, I am going to run through the implementation of all three versions, but my recommendation would be to look to the Professional and Enterprise versions for your reporting needs rather than the Express edition; unless your requirements are very simple (no requirements for dashboards, scheduling, security, multi-company) then Jet Express will not be sufficient.

Jet ReportsBack in May 2016, Microsoft and Jet Reports announced a new Microsoft Excel-based reporting product called Jet Express. I was aware of Jet Reports before then, but the announcement brought them back to my attention as well as highlighting that the future of Management Reporter is now somewhat limited.

I've spent a bit of time over the last few months taking a look at the different versions of Jet Reports and figured it was time to do a series of blog posts. Over the coming posts, I am going to take a look at the implementation of each of the three versions of Jet Reports; I'll also show the sample reports available from Jet Reports themselves, but will not cover report design in this series of posts. I'll probably do some posts on this in the future.

I've created a separate series for each of three versions of Jet Reports; the indexes below will populate as each post goes live.
