No-Brainer Report Generator

Can anyone recommend an easy-to-use Report Generator ... actually all I want to do is spin some 1-liner lists off of an MySQL Database on a Linux Server. Filter by some field, sort, print.  Run it thru a Browser. The easier to use, the better. I don't need any fancy formatting, Fonts, Pics, etc.

Linux server does not mean any limitation. Reporting tools are running as clients on various platforms.

You just need appropriate ODBC driver and the client reporting tool of your choice.

Visual FoxPro or even MS Access or Excel can connect to the MySQL data on a Linux server and query them for the report.  I am preferring Visual FoxPro because I know it better than anything else...

MySQL ODBC dta connectore is available here: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/
Drivers for different languages are also available: http://www.mysql.com/products/connector/
