MS word vs Reports??
I'm planning to do this project using C# and I want to know what is the best way to do this?

The application should communicate with a MySQL database that is on a server (remote connection), I was planning to build an API to retrieve from & to add/update information's on the database.

The thing is now, is that I want to retrieve some values from the Database, put them in a file and print them and I wasn't sure what's the best method/Library's or something that I should use.

Let's assume that the values in black are the ones I'm planning to to replace with what I'm going to extract from the database.

I don't have much experience with reports honestly and I'm not even sure If it's possible to make the DataSet remotely as I said, or edit the report info manually using code etc...

Any detailed answer on what is the best way to handle this situation is appreciated :) thank you!

You can create Microsoft Office documents by using COM Interop. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee342218.aspx

I did this a long time ago.
