Many domain specific textual languages have been developed for generating complex reports. These are challenging for novice users to learn, understand and use. We describe our work developing the prototype of a new visual language tool for a company to augment their textual report writing language. We describe key motivations for our visual language tool solution, its architecture, design and development using Microsoft DSL tools, and its evaluation by end-users.
