Taking The Scary Out Of Monster Reports

Speaker: Pam Shaw

Summary: So the big wigs have come up with a "master" report that shows everything you could ever want on a single report. It includes grids and charts of varying sizes and complexities. Did I mention they want it pretty as well? In this session we will discuss how to use SQL Reporting Services 2008 R2 to bring it all together while avoiding the pit falls and mistakes. The demonstration will show how to build a multi-page, dashboard style report to manage your report server showing a multitude of grids and charts. We will discuss the challenges with data reuse and formatting while exploring techniques for getting them to work. To get the most out of this session, you should be able to build a report in SSRS.
