I am looking for a program that will help make better SQL reports. Something that has better graphical presentation than ms report builder 3.0 or BIDS. Any suggestions?

Looks like Crystal reports is going to be the best bet. I found a company a few months ago that had really nice reports. It was based on the .net framework but I can't remember what the name is.
