But if you don't already own either of these products, this can be costly.

Check out RPV (  It's a report engine that takes a 
more simplistic approach to producing reports than Crystal.  For around 
$40-$50, you can purchase the product and distribute the runtime to ALL 
of your clients royalty free.

I have used RPV from many Python and Ruby apps and it works great.
