SQL Reports Generator and SSRS

Hi, apologize in advanced if this is related to my previous question I have posted.

But, is there any Reporting Tools (commercial/open source) that I can use to assist in generating custom reports from our current SQL DB?  Perhaps "add-in."?

Besides, these ones;  C.R, Excel using P.T., SQL Management Studio

Thanks again.

There are tons of third-party commercial reporting tools that can connect to SQL Server data, and a simple Google search will find them.

Open Source ... no idea.

Microsoft's tools..
SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) used to create canned reports, and distribute via Web / email / Sharepoint / other means..
Microsoft Office Power BI stack (Power Query, Power Pivot, Power Map, etc.) can be used for reporting for users that want to manipulate data.

For a sampling of Excel's capabilities using only Power Query check out my article on Microsoft Excel & SQL Server:  Self service BI to give users the data they want
