Recommendations for a decent/user friendly reporting package please

Post by Clair » Fri, 06 Apr 2007 17:26:13


Having struggled with Crystal Reports yet again. I've had a brief look round
for another reporting package but wondered if the community have any
recommendations.
It needs to be useable within visual studio in the same way that Crystal
Reports is but more user friendly and glossier looking.

Thanks :)

Have you looked at Reporting services yet? It comes with SQL Server and
should do pretty much anything you need.

You can check these out:

As a general rule anything MS does someone else does better -:)

If you weren't wedded to VS I would say look at the truely elegant - SAS
