We make use of stored proc to store the logic for our generic "Report Writer"
Another table stores the definitions needed for displaying input parameters to the end user.
Then another table stores definitions for the report's output fields, so it automatically
knows how wide to make the columns, and what display format to use, and columns headings, etc

Make modifications, new fields, and bug fixes very easy to deploy - just send a script to modify
the stored procedure. Also nice 'n easy to debug in IBExpert.
