We use Jasper reports: www.jasperforge.org
It's a feature-rich library for generation of any report to about any format you can
think of, and it's open source.
The downside is: it is a Java library but we use http communication between our Seaside
app and the jasper application.
In the future, I hope to get my own Javaconnect library (working in Visualworks) rolling
completely in Pharo to have native communication from Pharo to Java.
In the meantime, you might try JNIPort since that one has Pharo version already.
We can try to develop everything in Smalltalk but we will fail to keep up.
