Thanks Thierry, but I've gone over to Python, love the language and
libraries, gives me pleasure to write it. As for the 10x times, it might
be true if you are left to your own devices. But thankfully it has loads
of beautiful and useful libraries which allow me to keep writing a
language I've come to love.

Ed, never worked with templating systems, but reading the examples I have a few
doubts regarding their capabilities, maybe you know the answer to them?

Can you define page sizes, page footers, group headers and footers, group

Thanks Ed. I had seen that before - but as there was no GUI, I ignored it.
I need the GUI for absolute positioning of objects - similar to
VFP/Crystal/Jasper report builders.
Will have another look at it.
While I don’t do much reporting in Python these days, I would recommend a
simple templating system like Jinja or Mako to create the HTML output, and an
HTML-PDF converter to create the output. I did a quick google around and found
this article: http://pbpython.com/pdf-reports.html . It looks pretty
