BTW, the report wizard works, sort of. It produces nice reports, with a nice GUI but it's buggy as hell. If you don't follow exact sequence in the wizard, it will simply hang without any further explanation. It also suffers from the common ailment of many other ODBC tools: it brings out every table in the database, which can be quite a lot. This can be used by the DBA to produce 1-off reports, but is far from suitable to be given to the end lusers, to produce their own reports.
