My organization is considering switching from Crystal Reports to Report Designer provided by SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services. I am looking for feedback from experienced Crystal developers that are currently using the SQL Server 2005 Report Designer. My areas of concern are as follows: 1) Was it easy to transition from Crystal to SQL Report Designer 2005 if you do not have a .NET background? 2) How clean is an Export into Excel from the SQL Report Designer 2005? Is it as good as Crystal, better, worse? 3) How do subreports work in the SQL Server product in comparison to Crystal? Are you able to pass variables to the main report and use them in main report formulas. 4) Is there an equivalent to the Running Totals function? 5) Is conditional formatting applicable on detail objects, sections, summaries, running totals, subreports, etc. If there are any limitations or changes in with conditional formatting, please elaborate? 6) Do you need to know .NET programming to create "formulas"? 7) Can you have multiple sections for each report level (details a, details b, group1 a, group1 b, etc)? Any information you can provide on differences from a Crystal Report developer's perspective would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
