Hi every one, so here is the background:
I have a database with some tables, now need to decide how to access data, including SELECT by ProductName, generate statistics number and Graphs or Charts, and PDF download.

So I used to use old-fashion Web Forms with ADO.NET, like sqldatasource, adapter, datasets, etc to display data in a GridView.
But recently I learn that SQL has SSRS(Reporting Service).

I am wondering what's difference between GridView and Reporting Service, I know you can integrate Reporting in Web Forms, but I want to know which way is better to display data, graph, charts, statistics in Web Application??

Thanks so much for your adivce.....

"Better"? If you know something about a Gridview and do not know anything about reporting services then the Gridview is better.

Hmm, but GridView don't have much build in features for graph and charts
