- Experience with Microsoft SQL Server, including:
- SQL Server Agent
- SQL Server query language (SELECT, UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE)
- SQL Server System tables
- SQL Server accounts (users and permissions)
- At Course Completion
After completing this course, students will be able to:
- Describe SQL Server Reporting Services and its components.
- Create a Reporting Services report.
- Enhance a Reporting Services report.
- Create and manipulate data sets.
- Use report models to implement reporting for business users.
- Configure report publishing and execution settings.
- Implement subscriptions for reports.
- Administer Reporting Services.
- Implement custom Reporting Services applications.
Module 1: Introduction to Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services
This module introduces the role that Reporting Services plays in an organizations 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
This module introduces 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
This module introduces navigational controls and some additional types of data regions, and discusses how to use them to enhance a basic report.
Module 4: Manipulating Data Sets
This module explores data sets to a greater depth, including the use of alternative data sources and interacting with a data set through the use of parameters. Students 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 learn to use best practices to implement static and dynamic parameter lists when interacting with queries and stored procedures.
Module 5: Using Report Models
This module describes how to create a report model so that business users can create their own reports without using the full Report Designer development environment. Students also learn how to use Report Builder to create a report from a report model.
Module 6: Publishing and Executing Reports
This module explains the various options you can use to publish reports to the report server and execute them.
Module 7: Using Subscriptions to Distribute Reports
This module describes how to implement subscriptions so that you can distribute reports either automatically by e-mail or by publishing reports to a shared folder.
Module 8: Administering Reporting Services
This module discusses how to administer the Reporting Services server, how to monitor and optimize the performance of the report server, how to maintain the Reporting Services databases, and how to keep the system secure.
Module 9: Programming Reporting Services
This module explains how to query Reporting Services information programmatically and how to automate report management tasks. Students also learn how to render reports without relying on Report Manager, and how you can extend the feature set of a report server by creating custom code.
