Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Whether you're a manager or developer, you already know the fastest way to get results with SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services: hands-on, step-by-step, with an expert guide. That's why you want Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services Step by Step.

Microsoft's Step by Step series has always taught well via example: this book's no exception. You don't need a background in enterprise reporting: Stacia Misner introduces all those concepts. Then, just load the practice files, and go.

Within a few chapters, you'll be comfortable connecting to data sources, designing reports, running the report wizard, and publishing. Then, you'll gain increasingly deep mastery over the data you select and how it looks: from simple formatting to sophisticated report modeling. There's a full section on managing and securing Report Server; and another on report delivery (print, online, Web). Reporting has rarely been this accessible. Bill Camarda, from the May 2006 Read Only

    Absolute Junk!

    After 13 hours, I cannot get past Chapter 3 as the instructions for Configuring Reporting Services are incomplete and incompatable with the problems encountered. The Screen shots are not how the actual screens appear on the screen and we all know how famous the Microsoft Web Site i.e. MSDN is completely useless for finding anything.<BR/>After 15 years of programming, I cannot wait to get out this field and get away from the "Used Car" garbage software that Microsoft puts out. I strongly suggest avoiding this book, and know for a fact I will not waste money on another one as the product itself is junk.<BR/>Unfortunately, this site makes you give a star, but don't let the rating fool you.
