I asked a similar question a couple of weeks ago, though, I wasn't
looking to use Crystal. I found a product called ReportMaker (495
euros per development license) by a company named Synactis
( I'm going to purchase it in about five minutes.
It's supposed to handle pulling data from tables, views, or stored

I was quite pleased with the quick test I did pulling data from tables.
I have not tested it extensively, so I'm certainly not an expert (nor
am I a firebird expert). However, they have a connection service to IB
type databases that required no configuration on my part. When I
distribute the reports, I need to distribute (or have the clients
purchase) something called ReportRetoucher (55 euros per license).
