I need to give the users reporting tools.  What is the fastest and easist way to create a report?

Are there freeware controls I can download and hook into VB?  

I have been messing around with "Data Environment designer" but I want to see other options.

Have you looked into using the Crystal Reports that comes with Visual Basic?

I need freeware.  My employer is not going to fork over cash to a tool.  They told me to use freeware or something that came with VB.

So I probably need to get DataReports to work.
