Hi.

I'm a VB 6 developer looking at doing a new project in VB.NET (.NET remake of app)

I think that I've got quite a good grasp of the .NET world during the last 2 weeks, but I know nothing of reporting in VB.NET

My app will be heavily reliant on Reports. In VB6 i foud the datareport quite sufficient to service all my reporting needs.

What are my options in VB.NET, and will it be a big learning curve to get up and running with reporting in VB.NET?

Thanks

Regards
Fade

Check here for some micro$oft ideas of printing

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnwinforms/html/printwinforms.asp

there is also a report generator that is loaded into the SQL server from Micro$oft that is still free to down load.
I am guessing that this could replace CR reports in the future.
