ARWordReport is not perfect as main reporting solution when report generation speed is critical. However ARWordReport use many tricks and "know-how"s to achieve maximum possible performance while utilizing Microsoft® Word. Run demo projects to examine speed.
Note regarding MS Office Word 2010 and MS Office Word 2013.
(in case you got some Word security messages during report generation, that should not happen with default ARWordReport settings)
MS Office Word 2010 and MS Office Word 2013 allow external applications (which utilize COM automation) to open files from Office trusted locations only.
Since ARWordReport make copy of each report template file in ARWordReport.TemporaryPath folder before processing (initially this scenario was used to prevent multiuser/multithread simultaneous access to single template file), you should add your ARWordReport.TemporaryPath to Word`trusted locations list (or assign existing trusted location to ARWordReport.TemporaryPath property). This single intermediate ARWordReport folder make possible to use single trusted location to open report templates actually located across multiple different folders/network drives.
