Course Description

SQL Server provides two tools SQL Server Data Tools Report Designer and Report Builder to create robust reports in Reporting Services. Using either of these tools, developers or administrators can create different types of reports and format them accordingly using different options. This course will demonstrate how to create different types of reports, including tablix and matrix. It will also demonstrate how to add different options to the reports, including images, charts, column and heading formatting, and how to add interactivity.
