    we are looking for new tools to publish reports online. people in our company are used to the Excel format but we are open to other ideas.

    current process is prepping data in Access or SQL then using Excel or Acrobat to publish the reports then email the reports.

    current software
    MS Office
    .NET
    SQL (server)
    Crystal Reports
    Studio MX

    using .NET and crystal reports for .NET you can generate reports and have them display on the web... it's pretty seemless actually. Crystal is a bit of a bitch to figure out at first, but once you get the hang of it, it can be pretty useful. Crystal will also allow you to convert to a .pdf on the fly, which would allow you to provide the reports in that format as well.
