    As i review Active reports, it occurs to me that Active reports layout is very much similar to .net or vbnet layout.

    So first thing it is very user friendly for vb and .net forms or application developers.

    Secondly, its about the fixed page layout. which makes it very dependent upon the Business requirements and can leverage a lot the options like "can grow" and "group" and limit on page numbers and size.

    Hi,

    If you can tell us a bit about Active reports then we'd be glad to share comparison matrix based on the same w.r.t Crystal Reports.

    • I agree with Abhilash

      You will have to do the comparison your self. Re. Enterprise edition / User licence cost. Perhaps you could be a bit more wordy / don't be so mysterious / take a bit of time to explain in detail why you are asking what you are asking. What will be the end product of what you want to do? Else, you may want to call sales and see what they tell you. Sales number: 866-681-3435
