    Recommeded report & query tool

    Please advise for the report and query application tool which is suitable with the database in AS/400. Is there any one better than Crystal Reports?

    Thank you so much for the recommedation.

    p.s. for the time being i use Access which consumes so much time when query the high volume of data, so i'm looking for a new one.

    Crystal reports is the single most aggravating and uncooperative piece of software I have ever had to work with, hands down. It is nothing more than shareware masquerading as an Enterprise Solution. I would never recommend it to my worst enemies. The number of bugs and productivity drains in a product supposedly on it's eigth or ninth release is inexcusable. The only reason it survives is because of it's primacy into the marketplace.

    Of course, that's just my epinion.

    Now, THAT's based on experience. My knowledge of crystal reports is second hand.

    I found Crystal to be pretty good once I learned it a bit. I didn't come across any bugs.

    thanks so much for all information.

    i also have heard about bugs and incompatible between new and old version.

    will also consider the Cognos Impromptu and Active Report Professional. If you guys have any experince with these 2 programs, kindly please share your opinion.

    thank you so much again.
