I think both would be fine. I'm looking for an IDE similar to Crystal that 
will help me to quickly layout the reports and which will interface with a 
binary or a library or a whatever to allow me to feed the module an SQL 
string and the module or library takes it from there to output the report 
(i.e loop to read a record, determine break-points if an, sub-totals, grand 
totals, headers, footers, etc.)
