Reporting Tools?

Hello all,

I am in a situation like this.

I am going to create a software, for a doctor. He is asking for a feature which displays the prescription details before he prints it. I have seen such programs displaying them with a heading and all. As you and I know, they display the data in the exact way it is printed. After some research (and as I thoguht), this can be done by a reporting tool; isn't it? If yes, what reporting tool should I use? Whatever it is, I got 1 week to learn it. And, I use Netbeans. Please let me know what should I learn, and please tell me the easiest way of learning it too (Link appreciated, And please provide learning resources which I can learn it from the beginner's level to some usable level. I don't appreciate tutorials which teach you 1, then jump to 10 anyway). Please help.

Are you better than me? Then please show me my mistakes..

Check Jaspersoft iReport. There is a plugin available for NetBeans, and it's pretty straightforward and easy to use. Here are some tutorials you might want to check, too.

The quieter you are, the more you are able to hear.
