I've had great experience with www.advsofteng.com "ChartDirector". They have
a COM and .NET version and it's like $99 per server. It's a great charting
tool - you can do ANYTHING with it... and it's zillions of dollars cheaper
than ChartFX..

We make a nice Crystal Replacement it uses Microsoft Access report designer
and delivers web based reports as PDF files. You need a copy of Microsoft
Access, our product
and a pdf driver on the server. Against SQL it's best to use pass-thru
queries to run
sql againsts views/tables or to run stored procedures at runtime you can
pass everything
to the report in a variety of ways.

If you just need a graph component I recommend Graphics Server or ChartFX.
