use reporting services, its not just let you print the document in A4 format but also gives you the option to save it as word , excel or even pdf

You must first decide between the reporting and document generation which are two different things. Reporting is about creating reports where you mostly have a header, footer and lists. Documents on the other side employ word-processing concepts like paragraphs,
tables, pages, rich formatting and styles. as an example of what I think: would you create a complex contract by using crystal reports?
In case you would like to do document generation take a look at
http://docentric.com. It is a high end document generation toolkit, but no, it's not for free.
