  2. Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services Melville Thomson Parity Training

  3. What we will cover: • Architecture • Creating reports • Importing reports • Publishing reports • Viewing reports • Subscriptions

  4. Prerequisite Knowledge • Experience administering SQL Server • Experience administering IIS • Experience generating database reports • Familiarity with Visual Studio.NET Level 300

  5. Agenda • Architecture and Deployment • Creating Reports • Managing Reports

  6. What is SQL Server Reporting Services? • Reporting platform for both traditional and interactive reports • Scalable, manageable and embeddable server infrastructure • Integrated with SharePoint, Office applications, browser and other familiar tools • Single platform and tools for all types of structured data (relational, hierarchical, multidimensional)

  9. SQL Server Analysis Services SQL Server Reporting Services Reporting ServicesBI User Profiles Analysts 5-10% of users Information Explorers 15-25% of users Information Consumers 65-80% of users

  10. Authoring Management Delivery Reporting Lifecycle Reporting Services is an open and extensible platform supporting the authoring, management and delivery of rich, interactive reports to the entire enterprise.

  11. Report Authoring • Reports are defined in Report Definition Language (RDL), a documented XML schema • Use Microsoft or 3rd party tools that support RDL • Create single reports from multiple data sources(SQL, OLE DB, ODBC, Oracle, and .NET data providers) More info on the RDL spec: www.microsoft.com/sql/reporting

  12. Report Management • Report definitions, folders, and resources are published and managed in a reporting web service • Managed reports can be executed either on-demand or via schedule and are cached for consistency and performance • Scalable & Extensible server architecture

  13. Report Delivery • Traditional (paper) and interactive (web) reports • On-demand (“pull”) or event-based (“push”) delivery • Choose from multiple formats (HTML, Excel, PDF, XML) • Deliver reports to almost any device (e-mail, file share, etc.)

  14. Browser Management Custom App Data Sources (SQL, OLE DB, ODBC, Oracle, Custom) Output Formats (HTML, Excel, PDF, Custom) URL WMI Web Service Report Server Report Processing Rendering Data Retrieval Security Delivery SQL Server Catalog Delivery Targets (E-mail, File share, Custom) Architecture and DeploymentReporting Services

  21. Agenda • Architecture and Deployment • Creating Reports • Managing Reports

  22. Creating ReportsVisual Studio .NET Integration

  23. Creating ReportsReport Definition Language (RDL) • Report Definition Language – XML schema contains • Data source information • Layout • Report Properties • Definitions stored in Report Server Database • Can create tools that use RDL

  24. Creating ReportsReport Creation Process • Connect to the data source • SQL Server, Analysis Services, Oracle, ODBC and OLE DB • Specify the query • Arrange the report items on the page • Page header, page footer and body • Preview the results • Publish the report

  25. Report Items • Textbox • Image • Line • Rectangle • Subreport • Data Regions (List, Table, Matrix, Chart) • Custom Report Items coming in SQL Server 2005! $100,000

  26. All Report Items Background Color Background Image Border Color Border Style Border Width Padding Charts Background Gradient Textboxes Color Font Family Font Size Font Style Font Weight Format Line Height Text Align Text Decoration Vertical Align Item Styles

  27. Repeating regions with freeform layout Similar to “bands” in other report writers But multiple lists can sit side-by-side! Lists inside lists to get multiple levels of grouping Use for complex repeating areas Lists Brian $10,000 Jason $20,000 Steve $30,000

  28. Like lists with columns Fixed columns, repeating rows Table cells can span columns Table cells can contain any report item Easier to align items Use for most reports Tables Person Region Sales Brian North $10,000 Dan North $20,000 Total North $30,000 Steve East $50,000 Total East $50,000 Grand Total $80,000

  29. Repeats in row and column directions Also known as pivot table or cross tab Arbitrary formatting in headers Different formatting for subtotals Matrix cells can contain any report item Use when column headings are records in your data Matrices Sales 2000 2001 2002 Brian $100 $110 $120 Jason $200 $250 $300 Steve $300 $400 $300 Total $600 $760 $720

  30. Data from fields in the data set or from expressions Full set of chart properties and types Style enhancementsin SP1 Same data functionality as Matrix Charts

  31. Creating ReportsPreviewing and Publishing Reports • Debug – Preview • View reports in local preview window • Production – Publish • Publish reports to a production report server
