free report writer?

Hi

Does anyone know of a free report writer or a cheap report writer whether it is freeware, commercial or shareware, that can be used by
VB6 and that is OLEDB compliant? I tried the Data Report, but I don't
like it much. I guess I am looking for an alternative to the rather expensive Crystal Reports.

Thanks

Heine

    It's not the most elegant solution that I've found yet, mainly because of using Visual Basic as an "intermediary" between the Oracle database and java XML processors from Apache. I highly recommend checking out FOP, the Formatting Objects Processor from Apache. You'll need an understanding of XML and XSL stylesheets, though.
