    My recommendation and what I currently have been doing:

    Depending on the complexity & appearance of the reports, I use crystal reports
    4.6 that came with VB5 or Microsofts Excel Object. Yea I know, 4.6 is pretty
    cluncky but good for simple reports. What I like about 4.6 is the lack of
    DLL **** compared with version 6 & 7 and I would assume 8 & 8.5 (never used).
    I remember being on the phone on HOLD for 30 minutes with seagate (prior
    to crystal decisions) before I could even speak to anyone. Most of the time
    the answer were not problem solving anyway.

    Excel is what I primary use now for reports. I generate reports for all users
    and the users create macros to tweak those report (I have picky users). Simple
    to attach to email as well.

    With all that said, if presentation is a primary factor your best bet probably
    is Crystal Reports. Just my opinion though.

    I quote this from dotnet.announcements. Hope it helps.

    Justin...

    Looking for CR.NET information? A new 300+ page book has just been released.
    It starts out with introductory material on CR.NET and goes through topics
    such as sorting/grouping, sub-reports, ASP.NET and the complexities of data
    connectivity. The entire book is available online.

    Best Crystal tutorial and examples are in Crystal's help & example files ...
    especially for VB 6; never needed a book after looking at them.
    (I use CR Developer Edition 8.0).
    Try them before dropping 50+ on a book.
