File Extension XRF Description:

The extension XRF is associated with XLReportGen, a component of MS Office's Excel application. XRF files are generated using the Structured Query Language (SQL) instruction sets, which when executed produce simplified report documents from the original Excel file. Creating a report file requires an accompanying template (generally the Workbook from Excel) which determines the properties (such as layout) of the report.

SQL commands connect the report to associated databases, applying their data automatically to the document. This allows specific information to populate forms, generating reports with consistent form but containing specific data. XLReportGen can schedule operations for conditional or time-based activation, generating reports automatically at set times, in response to periodic events or at the prompting of outside applications. Any SQL compatible database can provide the data for these reports.

XLReportGen operates by following SQL instructions saved in the XRF format, which directs the programs operations. Using a template file (the Excel file or files providing the data for the report) and the XRF file's instructions, XLReportGen reads and writes data from the database, culls the results according to the instruction set and writes the output into the desired form. The final result is stored as an Excel file for additional manipulation or inclusion into other files as needed.

XLReportGen is an adjunct program, depending on a database application (generally MS Excel) for its output. It functions primarily as an interface between the SQL execution and the end user, providing graphical cues to improve productivity. Versions of this software were originally released for Microsoft Windows 95, with updated versions for all subsequent Microsoft Operating Systems.

The software has been successful due to the simplicity of its interface, the widespread use of the Excel application and the power and popularity of the SQL language. XLReportGen was produced by JZ Soft, which offers a large number of demonstration versions allowing users to experiment with a limited feature set before purchasing the professional versions.
