SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (SSRS) – Intro

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (SSRS) will provide you very rich enterprise reporting capabilities and Web-enabled reporting functionality.

You create reports which can report off a number of different data sources (I prefer SQL Server) normally via Reporting Services "DataSet" Report Designer object. SQL Reporting Services add-in Report Designer for Visual Studio allows to you automatically deploy your reports within Visual Studio to a centalised report server. The central report server will also manage security and subscriptions (think of these as scheduled tasks) for your report(s).  The report server also allows you to upload the report (file extension of .rdl) file via the built in Report Manager.

SSRS reports can be published in different formats i.e. PDF, Excel, CSV, HTM just to name a few.


Below is an overview of where SSRS sits within the breakdown of SQL Server product from Microsoft.
