Module 1: Introduction to Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services
The students will be introduced to the role that Reporting Services plays in an organization's reporting life cycle, the key features offered by Reporting Services, and the components that make up the Reporting Services architecture.
Module 2: Authoring Basic Reports
The students will learn the fundamentals of report authoring, including configuring data sources and data sets, creating tabular reports, summarizing data, and applying basic formatting.
Module 3: Enhancing Basic Reports
The students will learn about navigational controls and some additional types of data regions, and how to use them to enhance a basic report.
Module 4: Manipulating Data Sets
Students will learn how to dynamically modify the data set underlying a data region by allowing parameters to be sent to the underlying query, as well as will learn to use best practices to implement static and dynamic parameter lists when interacting with queries and stored procedures.The students will explore data sets to a greater depth, including the use of alternative data sources and interacting with a data set through the use of parameters.
Module 5: Using Report Models
The students will learn how to create a report model so that business users can create their own reports without using the full Report Designer development environment. Students will also learn how to use Report Builder to create a report from a report model.
Module 6: Publishing and Executing Reports
The students will learn the various options you can use to publish reports to the report server and execute them.
Module 7: Using Subscriptions to Distribute Reports
