    Good introduction to Reporting Services

    With the release of SQL Server 2005, many developers and business managers are clamoring to use the new features of SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services, but are unsure how to get started. This book takes the reader step-by-step through installing Reporting Services, to configuration, to generating a report, to finally customizing Reporting Services to meet a business need. This book is a good introduction to understanding what Reporting Services is all about. This book is well organized and divided into three sections: getting Reporting Services set up, generating a report with Reporting Services, and serving up the reports you create. The first section takes the reader through a step-by-step process of configuring Reporting Services. Additionally, the author identifies some common errors that might occur during set up and how those issues can be resolved. The second section is (in my opinion) the most interesting of the three sections. In this section, the author illustrates how to create reports. Examples are provided which show how to generate all kinds of reports, in addition to jazzing up the end result with graphics and colors. The final section details many of the administrative options that you should be aware of when deploying Reporting Services. In addition to some of the administrative details, the author shows how to customize reports with a style sheet and how to get the new report to integrate with a SharePoint site. This is a very interesting book, and I would recommend it to individuals who work with SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services. There is a lot that you can do with Reporting Services, and this book goes a long way to identifying and illustrating those things.
