However, we can't go much further until you show us what you have tried. We aren't here to do your homework for you. If you have major issues, you should talk to your teacher.

can u plz tell me the difference between Crystal reports and RDLC ??
Tim Corey 19-Jun-12 11:28am
Crystal Reports is a stripped-down version of CR that is included in Visual Studio. RDLC is a report type that is based upon the standard RDL format. They can be used stand-alone in projects or they can be used inside SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS). I would recommend you go the direction of RDLC. I've updated my solution to help you out.

Option 1:
You can use SQL Server Reporting Service (SSRS) (rdl reports)

One of the ways to build & use SSRS: Using Report Builder to build reports[^]
Few other SSRS articles that will help:
Beginner's guide for creating standalone .rdlc reports with SSRS[^]
ReportingServices:Application Developer Guide[^]
SSRS Series Part I: Various ways of Report creation, deployment and invocation[^]

Option 2:
You can use Crystal reports (rpt reports)
Have a look at these articles to get equipped with knowledge needed for it:
Dynamic Crystal Reports Viewing[^]
Dynamic Crystal Report with C#[^]
C# Crystal Reports step by step [^]
Introductions to Crystal Reports in .NET[^]

Option 3:
Get raw data from database from queries and display then in datagrid or may be chart controls.
Have a look at these to get equipped with knowledge needed for it:
MSDN: Microsoft Chart Controls...
New ASP.NET Charting Control[^]
