How does Microsoft Reporting in VS 2005 stack up against Crystal Reports XI?

I haven't used either, but I need to use one of them for my next project. I am leaning towards MS Reporting, because it looks cooler from the initial inspection, but I really know squat about the two. Which one would you suggest for relatively simple textual reports?

Hi krupini,

there is a comparison done here [in 2005]

i haven't used both either, but the fact that VS 2005 comes with Crystal Reports tells me that Crystal has some features not in SQL Reporting Services which is probably more tied into SQL Server then Crystal Reports

you probably have to make a list of the things you're looking for and then match it up with the features found in both products to make a decision + even though the comparison above is a year old it still will give some direction of the the differences between the 2

hope this helps a bit
