I think the best way is to use Crystal report.

Trying these links maybe it will help starting it up:

Have you looked into the ReportViewer control?

You can feed the GridView datasource to the ReportViewer. The control then allows the user to either view  / print / preview / export to Excel or PDF all from the control, pretty nice.
