Hello,

I am looking for recommendations of report building tools.

I am using MySql, and looking for a drag/drop WYSIWYG tool that let people without programming skills, construct their own reports.

Thanks

I would recommend Crystal Reports. You can download a free 30 day trial from SAP's website. It is a very simple too, and as long as a user knows how to connect to a database via ODBC, and what table or view or stored procedure to pull data from, the user can build a report. I have used both Crystal and Microsoft SSRS, and find Crystal much less frustrating. SSRS is more "programmer friendly" in my opinion.
