AUDIENCE AND PREREQUISITES
We will work with interactive reporting using parameters, create custom reports with rectangles and lists, use conditional formatting to enhance data presentation, use complex formatting expressions, add images to reports, provide drilldown capability, connect server-hosted reports, analyze data with mini-charts, mini-gauges, and scorecards. In addition, we will also troubleshoot and resolve failing reports and features early and often.
This course is intended for experienced Report Builder and SSRS report writers who are business analysts, programmer analysts, data analysts, developers, database administrators, and IT professionals. Course 55123: Writing Reports with Report Builder and SSRS Level 1
