Report Builder is almost identical to Reporting Services (the difference is that Report Builder allows you to create reports without having to download or learn Visual Studio). If you're not sure of the differences, speak to us and we can talk you through which application you should be using ( or have a look here).

This two-day course explains how to create reports in Report Builder: creating tables, lists and matrices, formatting reports so that they look beautiful and adding fancy devices like indicators and gauges!


There are no particular pre-requisites for this course, although a passing knowledge of how relational databases are formed will help. In particular, no knowledge of SQL is needed.
