    PLEASE tell which is a better option of storing report..i.e saving report HTML in database

    Please guide me which is a better approach and why..

    Scenario: My application has two parts:
    1.Web forms : There is a web form to create report. On this form i use ckeditor for creating report content.

    2.Downloadable exe: The downloadable exe, installs on client side 'an application' to create reports

    Both options are available to create report of a particular patient.
    i.e in application if from patient grid i select a patient i have two options available to create report using web form or using the installed application.

    Now the concern is how to save the report????
    OPTION1: SAVE THE REPORT content i.e the report HTML in database table.
    OPTION2: Save Report as word document.(in this case on server for every patient we are already creating a unique folder which contains patient history documents tagged with that particular patient, THE REPORT WILL BE SAVED AS WORD DOCUMENT IN THIS FOLDER )

    PLEASE tell which is a better option of storing report..i.e saving report HTML in database table or saving Report as word document
    (I HAVE TO CHOOSE A WAY so that reports created via web form or downloadable exe should sync with each other)

    Hello SP,

    If you are talking about synchronization than, I think HTML will be better, useful and easy for you to read the content.

    As per my view go for HTML Report.
