We have written a pretty extensive system  in vb6. We have written AP,AR,Inventory Control, Order and billing etc etc. modules that all interact. We currently use Data Dynamics Active Reports as our report generator addin.  We are now going to be rewriting/migrating to VB.net....what is a good software report generator for that ? Does anyone use Active Reports with VB.net ? Experience with any others ? Advice please

Some developers love their reporting package and that's great. If it does the job effectively, that's perfect. Don't fix what isn't broke.

The reason I'm commenting is that my current employer used Active Reports with their VB6 projects. It was not used in .NET development and management decided it was not needed. If they had wanted to use it, they could have.
