We require an SQL Reporting Engine for our .Net application

We have created a custom VB.Net application which has an SQL Server Express 2005 backend.  We are looking for a simple way to allow the creation reports within the .Net application.  As I assume this is a common requirement, we are hoping for a third party utility that we can bolt onto our software in a quick and easy manner that will act as a bridge to the data and allow users to design and create their own reports.  Ideally it should be relatively light as the reports would only need to be simple (at least initially).  Any recommendations would be gratefully received.
