Thank you all.

Next time I'll use datavision.

      Jos&eacute;,

 I'm still working on this, but I don't think I can install tomcat in this old underpowered customer's PC.

 Nevertheless, thank you very much for the tip. I think it'll be useful not only for me, but for anyone doing reporting in web apps.

 BTW, I think it could be useful to copy this thread to the Wiki or other more persistant organized place. Any ideas?

 Pagination is always going to be a problem with webpages, so far
 browsers really don't make inserting page breaks an easy task. If what
 you want is a Crystal Reports like product why not use datavision
 (http://sourceforge.net/projects/datavision) its free and works ok.

 Hi All,

 I have a small webware application in which I need to produce reports to be printed. Right now, html reports produce poor results (pagination is not constant).

 I bigger companies, we use Crystal Reports, but this is a small non-for-profit organization, so we can't afford commercial software.

 What are you guys using?

 I was checking out reportlab, but it seems a lot of work, and I couldn't find tables support.

 Best regards,

 Ed.
