Reporting tools

We have a database that uses SQL.  We are currently using a product called Logi Reports to produce simple web based reports that can be exported to XLS, PDF or XMS.  So the user would (from a web page) request different filters, hit run and it would produce a report on the screen from the SQL database for data that fits the filters that were used.  Logi is a free tool for limited use.  We are looking for a replacement took that isn't hugely expensive that would do the same thing.

Obviously we could use Business objects or something like Crystal Reports, but they can be very pricey.

Any Suggestions on a Reporting Tool
