Are there any free tools out there like crystal Reports?
I think the only weakness of this kind of approach is that it requires
light programming skills that crystal doesn't, and that it doesn't lend
itself to printable reports as much as crystal/brio/etc do. On the
other hand, simple tables & charts are a breeze, and I'd much rather
have 20 inter-linked pages on the web in php, than 20 crystal reports
on someone's desk.
Perhaps you haven't noticed ... but IBM DB2 and Oracle are not
Microsoft products. If not Crystal look at Cognos.
