When I was faced with creating reports that were well formatted, and
dynamic, I chose to go with HTML.

My report tool was basically a CHtmlView that would load up XML files which
would in turn get transformed to HTML using XSLT.

The nice thing about it was that I didn't have to worry about any display
problems, since the html browser would handle all the formatting and
printing for me!

Here is a screen shot of my report tool:

Worked out great for me. I think I reduced the work of 6 months into 1

I'm writing an MFC application that needs a ton of reports based on data
stored in SQLite.

There's not enough money for me to hand code all these reports in C++.
I've found free libraries such as Quick Print on CodeProject and they've
seemed buggy and poorly written.

I'm just wondering if others have dealt with this. The only thing I know
about Crystal Reports is that I hated it back many years ago when it was
included with VB classic. I won't rule out a package like this but would
prefer something smaller and easier to distribute. Also, I have no idea if
Crystal Reports could be made to work with SQLite.

Just looking for suggestions.
