Looking for a better report writer than Acubench

We have been succesfully porting our legacy app to the Thin Client but now need to replicate a lot of our reports. AcyBench is horrible when it comes to report writing. Is there an alternative for this? A large amount of our reports are written in troff but I am looking to have more reports that are written through the app and would be made availabel to the thin client user instead of having it done through the server.

  • I just wanted to add to this. Our legacy app is running on a SCO platform and all reports are generated through an enhanced troff product (Eroff) which is not available on the LINUX port we are moving to. We also have an app that runs on a LINUX server and accessed through Acuthin from the Windows Client. This is where we want to rebuild out reports and generate new ones but again AcuBench is severely limited in this area. There was a program called Totem at one point which looked identical to AcuBench but had better controls for writing reports. I have not seen that product mentioned anywhere. So any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
