Hi There,

I am in the process of writting in Visual Studio 10 and SQL 2008 R2 Express 10GB version backend a database programme which is designed for salespeople to use in an office. It keeps customer and supplier contact information and can process orders and stores products the users sell and can create quotations to send to customers.

I want to sell this package around the world and bundle into it either SSRS or Crystal reports etc but the package I go with needs to do the following:

1. Must be able to build into our package, so it looks like it is part of our package.

2. Must be able to send out as part of our package so it can be part of the initial install.

3. Must work all over the world and I must be allowed legally to do this ie licensing.

4. We want to make a quotation template so that users can drop in a pre set table which drops our products in and pricing, sorted in the order we have pre set.

5. We want the user to be able to set up mail merge ie for company name, address etc.

6. We want to send out some custom reports for users to be able to view.

7. We want users to be able to set up reports for themselves in some cases.

Any help as i'm having a nightmare would be great.

There is a method of developing and deploying SSRS reports locally within your application without any licensing concerns. Basically, you include the report as an .RDLC file - and combine it with a the data source in your code and present the data.

I think this is what you are looking for.
