Description:

"Brilliant! This tutorial will definitely save you hours of figuring out things yourself." -- Koos ten Bras

"Excellent course, well presented and clear examples." - Peter Cawthorne

This course is all about creating reports in SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS). No prior knowledge is needed, but some knowledge of T-SQL would be useful.

We will download a version of SQL Server which includes SSRS - for free. We'll also download a database called AdventureWorks, which we will use in our reports.

We'll create various reports, developing our skills bit by bit. As part of designing a report, we will:

  • Select report components (matrix, table, chart and other data visualisation component),
  • Identify the data source and parameters,
  • Design a grouping structure,
  • Create drilldown reports and drillthrough reports.

As part of implementing a report layout, we will:

  • Find out how to format, including formatting colours, dates and numbers;
  • Configure the page;
  • Implement headers and footers;
  • Implement matrices, tables, chart, images, indicators, maps and groupings in reports;
  • Create a range of reports using different data regions;
  • Define custom fields;
  • Implement global collections;
  • Define expressions; and
  • Implement data visualisation components.

As part of implementing interactivity in a report, we will:

  • Create drilldown reports;
  • Create drillthrough reports;
  • Add interactive sorting;
  • Investigate parameters, including multi-value parameters;
  • Create dynamic reports in SSRS using parameters;
  • Implement show/hide property;
  • Add actions (jump to report and URL);
  • Add Fixed headers and a document map.

By the end of this course, you should be confident in creating your own reports in SSRS.

It will assist with the "Build a report with SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS)" section of Microsoft exam 70-766 "Implementing Data Models and Reports with Microsoft SQL Server".

Who this course is for:

  • This course is for you if you want to know how to create reports in SSRS.
  • No prior experience with T-SQL is required, although the more knowledge you have it, the better.
  • Having SharePoint on your computer is not necessary; we will use the stand-alone version of SQL Server. However, I will show the differences and similarities between Report Builder (SharePoint) and SSDT (the stand-alone version).
  • In this course we will cover several aspects which are tested in Microsoft's 70-466 exam "Implementing Data Models and Reports with Microsoft SQL Server".
  • This course is not for you if you only want to know about managing your existing SSRS reports in SharePoint.

Course Details:

  • 6 hours on-demand video
  • 13 articles
  • 5 downloadable resources
  • Full lifetime access
  • Access on mobile and TV
  • Certificate of completion
