I don't like the built in report functionality with VB 6 and was wondering if anyone knew of a better utility that will combine with VB6 so I can do reporting.

I've been working with Crystal Reports 8.5 but am upset because my report file will not open.

Is there any other solutions out there?

Thanks,

CR8.5 is an excellent option.  What problems are you having opening the report?

Thanks for the replys.  I will try datadynamics but the problem with Crystal Reports 8.5 is the file is always getting corrupted somehow and then won't open with a message invalid TLV record or something to that effect.  I like the way crystal looks but can't do all that work and have it lost.....
