Jet Reports

Jet Reports is better suited if you have a specific population set you are looking at and less suited when querying or summing large pools or data, records, etc. I use a combination of Jet & SQL syntax when performing the latter because it allows me to harness the speed of our SQL server. Jet allows more for more customization when bodes better for users.

Alternatives Considered

Jet Reports

[Jet Reports is] So much better. Jet Reports works with Excel so you can use a base knowledge of something everyone is familiar with to create any kind of report possible - not only single reports but cross referencing other report and data tables.

Phocas Business Intelligence

Phocas is easy to use for end users and can be used on desktops, laptops, and phones.
