I am wondering if SQL Server Reporting Services and add-on tools and utiilities can let us create reports from SQL/Access/Excel databases with the following characteristics:

ability to interface with SQL tables/Access/Excel

once the connection/link above  is in place, the design of the report should be very graphical and easy to set up assuming the user is familiar with the data fields

once a report is created the ability to distribute a runtime version of it  that refreshes itself with new data

I would like someone with field experience in setting up the above - if it can be setup - respond. I am open to alternatives as well other than Crystal Reports.
