Course description

SQL Server 2014 Reporting Services

This course introduces Microsoft's SQL Server Reporting Services 2014 (SSRS) utility. It begins with a discussion of the Reporting Services architecture and how to set up Reporting Services servers. Students will install and configure Reporting Services, and perform hands-on exercises where they create various types of reports, including basic table-based reports, parameterized reports, drilldown reports, linked reports, sub-reports, matrix reports (pivot tables), free-form reports and reports with charts and gauges. Students learn how to group data and add subtotals and totals to reports, as well as how to add custom calculations using the built-in functions or using custom functions written in .NET. Also demonstrated are all of the data sources for reports that Reporting Services supports including: SQL Server databases, Access databases, XML files, Oracle databases, data warehouses and Analysis Services data cubes.

Report Models, and how they can support end users creating ad-hoc reports, are covered and students practice with them in comprehensive hands on exercises. This includes a demonstration of Report Builder, which is a free report authoring tool from Microsoft. The course ends with a complete overview of Report Server administration, including how to deploy and secure reports, how to schedule automatic report generation and delivery, how to backup reports, how to store previous copies of reports in history folders, and how to maintain and troubleshoot Report Servers.

Who should attend?

Familiarity with database concepts, Windows desktop navigation and software installation techniques. Attendance at the SQL Programming course or Microsoft Transact-SQL Programming course is highly recommended although not required.
