I have no recommendations for reporting software.  Perhaps someone else does, but I think you need to clarify what kind of  reports you are looking for.
What are you trying to report on?   If you have SQL Server rather than Access, then you had to have  a reason to purchase that, so what was the purpose if not to generate your own queries and reports?

As for the multi-link question, I don't understand what you mean.  Is what you are calling a "multi-link" different from what we call a "metaconnection" -- which is tow or more links into the same network?  NetView will monitor each link in a metaconnection independently -- you'll get traps about both links, even though they form one logical link.  It will be represented on the map as one "fat" link, but if you click on it,  it splits into separate "thin" links.

As my name suggests I am kinda new to netview. Can any one tell me which would be the best reporting software which can be used with Netview  and MS SQL to generate reports.
Also how can I configure netview to monitor two links individually in a Multilink? I have configured NV to discover from the seed file.

Do you Yahoo!?
