GeneralWhat is the status of report generation these days? Pin

What goes around comes around, and justice grinds slowly.

It appears I have some report generation in my future for a couple of projects. I know a limited Crystal Reports version used to ship with VS 6 (yeah, that far back). I'm curious what everyone *here* uses these days. What do you hate, what will you tolerate? I'd ask what do you love, but then, I've never heard of anyone loving a report generation tool. Smile | :)

I have two needs - the first is to be able to generate ad hoc reports against a couple of internal databases. People want to play with generating their own reports, so I need something relatively simple to use.
The second is more production oriented for a manufacturing system. They'll be a canned set of reports generated on an order by order basis.

Yes, I did a google search, but all I get are myriads of pages listing the top 10 report tools and direct links to the company pages.
