To increase the attractiveness of its SQL Server, Microsoft recently released Reporting Services. These help you generate management level summaries of data stored in SQL Server. The authors show how Microsoft has implemented this in a tight integration with its .NET platform. There are numerous screen captures of the wizard UIs that generate reports. Nice. In parallel with these diagrams are often listings of the corresponding XML data that describe what the diagrams show. The book assumes a reasonable familiarity with XML. But even if you are new to it, the verbosity of XML tags should make the examples self documenting. One thing is clear from this book. The Reporting Services need a programmer to use them. The wizard helps somewhat to reduce the need for explicit coding. But if you have any nontrivial customisation needs, you will need to program. Though the code examples are not that intricate. Which also means that if you are casting around for some programming expertise to develop, as job security perhaps, then do not settle on Reporting Services. If you can, find something more intricate that you can handle. It is a greater barrier to entry.

This book takes you from the basics to very advanced activities. Anyone who is serious about creating custom report solutions should implement SQL RS and use this book. It will help you through step-by-step 'how-to' to create an extremely professional result. Reporting Services is fairly new to the public. Only now are books of this nature becoming available. This one is the best!
