Default A really good report writer....?

I am looking to find a really good, user-friendly report writing application to link into an SQL relational database, for my clients to use. They have a series of reports that are provided within my software, but the more technically minded clients want to have the facility to write their own reports ... though, technical, they wouldn't be experts and only have limited SQL knowledge, so looking for a package that is good, reliable and easy to use ... with a fairly decent output.

My mind casts back to Crystal Reports, but would have thought that there must be better tools out there, which can take some of the ache out of building the queries - because it can interpet the relationships.

Any advice welcomed.
