    Post What is important about reporting tools?

    When you look to buy a 3rd party reporting tool to use with VB or your .NET development, what are the characteristics you look for when making the decision on which to buy? Is it ease-of-use, controls, and/or something else?

    I'm not looking for tools that you use or sell, but rather what makes you consider one tool over another.

    Thanks!

    Brad!

    We use SSRS in my office and I haven't had too much to do with it. I've had to modify some reports but not build any from scratch. To be frank, I find the SSRS report designer in VS very clunky so, if I was to look for a third-party alternative, ease-of-use would be high on my list of priorities.
