It does a good job of covering the fundamentals and simple reporting needs. For the SSRS newcomer, it is a great place to start.

— Will Wagers, C# Online.NET

SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) 2005 is the latest version of the reporting technology from Microsoft. This book examines all of the technology that SSRS provides to design, author, render and deploy professional business reports to the Web or to the company intranet (in a variety of formats, from HTML to XML, PDF, or TIFF), with detailed examples at every step.

It covers all of the new functionality present in the 2005 version, including the new management and BI development studios as well as the new report viewer controls and end-user reporting tools. It also contains significantly expanded chapters on Business Intelligence along with a wealth of tips and workarounds for effective development with SSRS.

The authors are both highly experienced with SQL Server and with business reporting in the medical industry, which is subject to rigorous HIPAA regulations and strict security. It is not their intention to evangelize the product or present "idealized" examples based on the simple built-in schemas. Instead, they take a hard, critical look at the technology and provide exactly what the reader needs to know to deliver effective reports. Their code examples are based on real, complex schemas and the need to deliver versatile, dynamic reports, as well as on strict security and performance requirements.

In summary, this book will provide you with step-by-step guides, best practices, and real code examples covering all of the common Reporting Services tasks, including:

  • A detailed overview of the reporting architecture and tools
  • The new Report Definition Language Standard, which is XML-based and allows you to define reports in VS.NET
  • Building effective queries for high-performance reporting
  • Building custom .NET applications with SSRS
  • Rendering reports to HTML, XML, PDF and Excel
  • Deploying secure reports, using Windows authentication through Active directory
  • Business Intelligence reporting using SQL Server Analysis Services

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow April 5 2006
By K. Remail - Published on
I began this book with limited Reporting Services experience, not really knowing what to expect. What I found in every chapter was that the authors really took the time to explain the nuances of this technology that can only be understood from working with it in the real-world and not on a sample database with simple reports. I also learned much more about basic and advanced queries that really helped me out with parameters and stored procedures. I would definitely recommend this book for everyone new to reporting services and those who would like to get answers to detailed reporting scenarios.

2.0 out of 5 stars You should probably look elsewhere March 16 2006
By Terry Smith - Published on
I found this book to be weird quiet frankly. Chapter 2 goes off the deep-end of designing efficient queries before you've even built a report yet. That material should have been put at the end of the book. Creating a report with the report wizard is covered in Chapter 4 but probably would have been best if it was before Chapter 3 which covers creating a report manually. I didn't find anything "Pro", as the name implies, or advanced with the book. It's a broad introductory text only. Also, it only covers using the ReportViewer control for Win Forms and not the one Web Forms. The two are similar enough but coverage of both would have been better.

5.0 out of 5 stars got me up and running with SSRS QUICK! April 24 2008
By Radames Ortega Pol - Published on
Loved the writing style. I really appreciated that instead of boring us with an introductory chapter to RDL (Report Definition Language), they sneak it in here and there, keeping the info flowing at a good pace. Plus they wrote the book based on a real-world project they worked on, which makes it easier to grasp the concepts. I give this an A+ and will look for Apress books first from now on ;)

This book has been well written. Concise, but to-the-point. Coverage on Share point portal and Microsoft CRM is the most comprehensive comparing all the other SRS books in the market. I would recommend you buy this book as well as Wrox to be complete.

I really enjoyed this book. It was informative and met my needs for a pending project. The examples were easy to follow and provide reinforcement fot the concepts that I learned.
