I don't live on grants either. Have never solicited one and never received one.

I wasn't implying you had a license issue but rather that givent the cost of a license the cost of a report writer is pretty small: Not zero but small.

But I am wondering where you got the $10K price. At http://store.oracle.com they are offering it at $1K for a named user perpetual license. How many developers do you have?
