Unanswered: SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services vs. Crystal
Does anyone out there have experience with SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (not 2000). My organization is considering moving to it because its free with the SQL Server 2005 package.
We are on SQL Server 2003 so moving to 2005 is inevitable. But, we use Crystal 8.5 to develop all of our production reports. We still use the compiler to distribute them which is why Reporting Services is also attractive to us.
However, I'm concerned about losing functionality as I am not a .NET developer. I depend on the tools and functions within Crystal to design, sometimes complex, reports.
