To be honest I hadn't looked into tools that closely, I was simply planning to use SQL and openoffice to chart things. 

But, I'm a simple home user, so don't want anything too complex (and I'm not an accountant, so without clear requirements, don't know what many of the asked for reports would look like). 

Sorry for the message formatting, unfortunately just the way the blackberry does it.

What tools would you use for reports?  I've been looking for an open-source 
Crystal Reports-like tool that could be used but haven't found anything.
