This is an introduction to SQL Server Reporting Services 2005. I am not going to explain the architecture and concepts around the Reporting Services (MSDN will do a great job on that). If you’re following my “How-To” articles, all the examples are outright step-by-step of the “how’s” and not the “why’s”. This series will demonstrate how to create report from ground up. We’ll start from creating our database and the tables and gradually progressing towards creating our simple report to the advanced report design. Knowledge of SQL Server and TSQL is required.
