Data quick view is somewhat similar to reports in that they both provide parameters prompting for end users' input and retrieve data accordingly.
Major differences between data quick view and reports are as follw:
Designing data quick view is simpler than reports because it does not require the time consuming report template designing.
Data quick view ouputs to screen in table format. It also allows users to export its output to file which can be easily imported to spreadsheet processors such as LibreOffice and Excel. The report format can be quite complicated primarily for printing out to papers. Although report can also be exported to Excel file, its content is not very useful due to its lack of concept of spresheet's "cell".
