I've never heard of anyone loving a report generation tool.
My "boss", a DBA, loves my tools. He can generate the interface for I/O (data queries, data entry/edit/delete) and feed them to his stored procedures. All from SQL tables. It generates a table automatically from the returning record set - configurable in a feature-creep-dreamworld. It's now approaching 800 reports for the same set of php/javascript files. Even a button to convert the table returned to an excel file. Paging, for large records sets and all sorts of crap. I built into it about 40 data-base configurable HTML controls - char/numeric/VIN/drop-list (regular and parent-child that even work many-to-many), even one for javascript injection.

As he noted, I made his life very easy. We don't need not stinkin' crystal reports.

It is corporate-agnostic. It'll work for insurance claims or pizza orders. The generating their own reports is (via the input fields) by creating SQL filters on-the-fly. Also, line, bar, and pie charts - but as it turns out, no one wanted them once they became available.

Yeah - he loves it.
