Hi again,
 I Love EE.... you were helping me few moments back... now I am helping you... cool.
You don't have to go for any other report creator... 'cause VS.Net has CrystalReport in it. Let me give you some examples on how to create report with VB.Net... BRB

Crystal Reports only comes with Visual Studio .NET, if you bought VB .NET by itself then you don't have Crystal Reports. If you do have VS .NET then you can start add a new report by right-clicking your project name in the Solution Explorer, then going to Add - Add New Item... - Crystal Report.

However, any client computer can open an already compiled VB .NET application that uses Crystal Reports, as long as they have installed the run-time engine, which you can attach to your VB .NET application in a setup and deployment project.
