I'm not sure if this is a solution you are looking for, but if you use ColdFusion with your Flex applications, you can always try ColdFusion Report Builder. This is what I use at work. It outputs any report queries in flashPaper, PDF, or excel formats. It is an Adobe product, so if CF is your backend, give it a try.
You can have these reports generated directly in your Flex app or in a new browser tab/window.

Thanks a lot for your answer, but, I'm using Apache/php for my backend not coldfusion. I'm pretty new to flex reporting so I could be missing something. Any help would be really apreciated.
Thanks in advance,

You can find Reporting tool from the following link
I guess this will help u out..!!
A simple solution may just be to create a custom component (a form, a datagrid, a list, etc), fill your dataProvider with your data results, then run Flex's print functionality on the component (google Flex print if you need help with this).
I'm sure, as the above poster describes, you could find some pre-build custom components from various sites, but it doesn't stop you from creating your own.
Other than charting, there's not much built-in reporting for Flex, though in Flash Builder 4, you can easily generate forms from a data service.
Thanks again for the answers. I think I will publish a webservice for reporting with crystal reports backend.
