I have to create a report in Excel from a SQL Server Dataset.  What is the best approach to accomplish this.  The report itself is a pivot type report and cannot simply render a datagrid to Excel?

Thanks for your links.  Although good approaches I'm afraid I wasn't I missed a few key points in my original question.  The first being, that Excel/Office is not installed on the server that this report will be generated from...is is possible to use InterOp with Excel if Office is not installed on the box?

How about building an in-memory XML with all the summary detail and stepping through it to build a table display which can be converted to excel in the same fasion you would export a datagrid?
