As part of the Firebird product -- No. Firebird isn't an application
environment, it's a database engine.

There are lots of good application products around for designing database
reports. What you choose for reports depends largely on the application
development tools you use. Report designer tools don't tend to be freebies
but try googling "reporting tool" + "firebird" and you might get a surprise.

There are a couple here:

Some of the big names, such as Crystal Reports, use an ODBC interface and
have their own report design templates built in. There are ODBC drivers
for Firebird. You can also use Firebird + ODBC as a back end to M$Access
and some workalike products.

If you are a Delphi programmer, take a look at FastReport.
