My goal here is simple: I want a tool to create a visual template (because I don't want to design by code) of a report (stats,charts etc), and then fill it with processed data from a database (thus needing a language to pull the data from the DB and to make all the processing.
EDIT: I'd like a desktop tool.
It should work on either windows or ubuntu linux. either one is fine.
It should be a free open-source tool.
I expect it to be able to visually design a report template. by that I mean drag and drop, and WYSIWYG.
I wanna fill it with processed data from a SQL Server DB. I expect to pull the data and process it with a fairly standard language preferably python or C#.
the charts I'd like to be able to display in the report should be pie charts, line charts and bar charts. Ideally the tool would generate them.
thanks in advance
