Hi, Can anyone help me with finding a mid-range cost effective business reporting tool?
I have been pointed in the direction of Ripplestone and Crystal Reports.
Are there any other tools out there that I could try out for creating automated reports:
These are a few features that the tool should have as standard:
1)Security (Admin interface, User interface)
3)Simultaneous Connectivity to various databases in order to create a data warehouse. Databases includes MS Access, SQL Server, EZ Access etc
4)Easy report building functionality

Anything else on top of these will be a bonus!

Hope someone out there can help me out...

    Why cannot you program MS Access for your use. We used it for multimillion dollar projects with great sucess.
