I'm looking for suggestions for a decent .NET reporting tool. I will need a way to display reports in a variety of .NET applications, including ASP.NET web sites. It should be exportable to numerous formats, word, pdf, excel, csv, html, etc. It needs to have a decent report creation/modification interface which does not need to be web-based.

Just submitting links is fine, but providing extra information on why you would recommend the tool would be helpful.

Also, the current front-runner in my mind is Crystal Reports which I haven't used in a while. If anyone could mention how easy or difficult their tool has become, it would also be helpful.

This question is on a similar line to yours: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/Reporting_Tools/Q_21879665.html

I use MS Reporting Services, and although a relatively 'new' product in the reporting market I've found it a lot cheaper and easier to implement than Crystal/Business Objects (same company now).  It is XML and .NET based and thus can be eaisly integrated into your own website.

Its export formats cover the ones you need:
* HTML with Office Components
* Excel
* Web Archive
* Acrobat PDF
* TIFF
* CSV
* XML With Report Data

Report creation interface is through Visual Studio .NET, with the RS2005 version having report creation tool for users.

More info from MS here: http://www.microsoft.com/sql/technologies/reporting/default.mspx

Good overview and tutorials: http://www.databasejournal.com/features/mssql/article.php/3304481 (Bottom of page 3 has the tutorial links)

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll look into it.

I'm still looking for more contenders so I'm going to leave this open for more suggestions.
