It depends of what you are tying to achieve. If you want just to generate a report you could use the Reporting Tools. On the other hand if you want a web page you could use RadGrid. The difference between the two products is that if you use RadGrid you have to add the CSS rules separately in the code behind when you are exporting. I suggest you to check out the following help topic
Additionally, if you decide to use the Reporting Tools I would kindly ask you to open a new forum thread or a new support tickets and choose a Reporting product. Otherwise you could stick to this one, and we can continue our conversation if you need further assistance.
