Great! I am looking on your Stimulsoft Reports engine for some hours - and found it great!!! Think we will buy this after a test phase with customers!!
Our application collects and analyzes financial data. Then it builds complex reports on it. We found Stimulsoft Reports meets nearly everything we need. It gives us ability to build powerful great looking reports. In addition we found Stimulsoft Reports support team is very prompt to support customers in every need and every time. We are very satisfied with Stimulsoft Reports as our report generator engine.
After trying dozens of report engines for VB.NET, none seemed to me appropriate. And finally I found your Stimulsoft Reports! It's great!
The 3 reasons why your product is great:
1. Unlimited nesting of databands.
2. Direct data-access.
3. Integrated form of code editor for simple dialog boxes.
Compared to Crystal Reports, Stimulsoft Reports is a breeze. We use it for all printed documents in our solution and they produce beautiful, clean and professional looking documents. Add to that the fantastic report designer provided with the solution, and you have great looking documents with nothing more than a dataset and a few data bands. We have been very impressed with the quality of service, and the level of support provided by Stimulsoft. In one instance, they even created a special build of the component with a new API function due to a particular need in our software solution.
As we were looking for the new report generator Stimulsoft Reports was the best product to solve our needs.
The 3 main features need for the report generator is:
1. The end user being able to edit the report;
2. Automatic printing so the users don't have to select printer each time;
3. A way to implement it in our VB.NET application so I can control the printer settings for each user to handle different printer locations e.g. home office.
Stimulsoft Support team was very helpful to come up with solutions for our questions, and it happened very quickly every time. Stimulsoft Reports has helped our IT department tremendously as the users define there own printer when they are printing a document type for the first time. And the next time the document is printed the printer is selected automatically. We are printing about 600.000 pages a year and Stimulsoft Reports takes care of it all.
We will recommend Stimulsoft Reports to every one, who needs the report generator implementation in their application.
I think your product is awesome!

Things I really like in Stimulsoft Reports (and why I've bought it). The ability to use C# Code in the report or via my own assemblies is just wonderful. There is no need to use some cryptic Pascal like script language. Just C#, which I obviously already use. Just great. In Stimulsoft Reports it is very easy to save/load a report or a rendered report to a database. Just using the WriteToString and LoadFromString methods. No more hassle with Streams. Databinding is very easy and can be done from inside the application or from the report. So it should be.
Overall this should be the report generator to be shipping with VS, not Crystal Reports, which isn't even written in managed code.
Keep up the good work!
I have been evaluating Stimulsoft Reports and I am impressed with the quality of the product, very well engineered component, well thought out and well designed user/developer interface. I just bought it. Comparing to a few other big name reporting components, in my opinion Stimulsoft Reports is currently right up there among the bests. The good thing I see is that the software focuses on what it is meant to do and do it well without clever ads embedded into the product.
Keep up the good work Stimulsoft.
Your reporting tool is really the best combination of ease of use, reasonable price, advantageous licensing policy, excellent report quality and the fastest support service I have ever seen.

I had to take the time to tell you how impressed I am with your report product. I have downloaded and tested several reporting tools and yours is simply the best I have found/used. I simply fill and reg a dataset and can build my pages just from that by drag and drop. Anyway I just wanted to tell you how wonderful the product is.
Thanks again for the product.
Great piece of sofware and the first real CUSTOMER orientated support!!

I use Stimulsoft Reports with Visual C# 2005 and VistaDB. Originally I used Crystal Reports, but had Big Problems with the Access. So I've tested Stimulsoft Reports and was 100% satisfied. It's Easy to use. The functionality is exactly what I need and until now I do not reach any boundaries. It's extremely good embedded into the Visual C# Environment. A Big plus is the possibility to save the Report As C# source Code and include the Files directly into source-Code. It was Easy to create the Reports with the Report wizard and it's also Easy to change the Reports later. I've tested a Lot of other products (like ActiveReport) but I never repented the decision for Stimulsoft Reports.
It's a great product which I really like to recommend.
You people are just great and the service is a 5 star. I have downloaded it on my machine and will be using your software for my software development. When I go live, I will purchase the software.
Thank you a million.
I am very pleased and happy that at last I have found very good .NET software.
