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?

Crystal is the one I have seen used the most. But there are other alternatives, check out this link which might give you some ideas:

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.
