XtraReports Suite v2008 vol 2, the latest release of DevExpress’s WinForms and ASP.NET reporting controls, allows you to add calculated fields to your data sources and includes Expression Editor dialog to build formulas for calculated fields.

A new report parameter feature exposes a collection wherein you can add parameters together with a data type, description and default value. Two new summary types – Running Sum and Percentage have been added and to make the End-User Report Designer more user-friendly, you can now completely localise its Property Grid, including property and control names.
