Sander,

I did a project a little while ago now, that needed a similar thing.

After much flitting around we settled on Bold Reports from Syncfusion.. BUT with a bit of a twist.

We realised that we could use the original Microsoft Reports Designer tool used to create reports for Report Server (Rather than the Bold Reports tool, which at the time was still quite flaky and buggy), then use the "bold reports stand alone assembly" to load those report files, and programmatically combine them with our own data at run time.

Hit me up off piste (You can find my contact details in any of the Succinctly Series books I've written Wink | ;-) ) if your interested, I've probably still got some sample code somewhere.

Shawty
