In this 2-day course, students will continue their learning on the foundations of report writing with Microsoft® SQL Server® Report Designer and SSRS. The focus will be on report creation by connecting to a database and manipulating the data for presentation including: creating parameter reports, creating list reports, adding complex expressions to reports, adding images and subreports to reports, adding drilldown and drillthrough functionality, and adding sparklines, data bars, and indicators to reports.

Report Designer is available for all supported versions of Microsoft® SQL Server®.

  • Create parameter reports.
  • Create list reports.
  • Format reports with complex expressions.
  • Add images and subreports.
  • Add drilldown and drillthrough functionality.
  • Add sparklines, data bars, and indicators.

Module 1: Parameter Reports

This module introduces the use of the parameter in report writing. Parameters allow a level of self-service reporting wherein the report audience can choose the data to view (date range, department, geography, etc.).

Lessons

  • Parameterized Reporting
  • Create Report Parameters
  • Modify Report Parameters
  • Provide Default Parameter Values
  • Provide Available Values for Parameters

Lab 1: Creating Parameterized Reports

  • Create Single Value Parameter Reports
  • Create Multi-Value Parameter Reports
  • Create an Available Values Parameter Report
  • Create a Parameter Report with Default Values
  • Modify Existing Parameter Reports

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe the key benefits and features of report parameters.
  • Create parameterized queries and parameterized reports.
  • Create parameters which accept single values, multiple values, expose or hide the parameter value, provide a list of available parameter values, and provide parameters with default values.
  • Modify existing parameters and parameter reports.

 

Module 2: List Data Regions

This module introduces the list data region. List data regions allow report writers free-form control over their reports, whereas, table and matrix reports bind you to a table or matrix data presentation. This free-form feature affords the report writer the ability to truly customize the report.

Lessons

  • Introducing the List Data Region
  • Create Reports Using List Data Regions
  • Modify Reports Which Use List Data Regions

Lab 1: Creating List Reports

  • Create a Multiple Column Report with List Data Regions
  • Create a Report with Rectangles and Nested Data
  • Create an Enhanced Report with Rectangles and List Data Regions

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe the benefits of list data regions and rectangles in reporting scenarios.
  • Create reports which display data in multiple columns.
  • Create reports which take advantage of nested data.
  • Create enhanced reports using list data regions and rectangles.

 

Module 3: Enhancing Reports with Complex Expressions

This module introduces several new report formatting techniques which allow the report writer better control over the data displayed in the report.

Lessons

  • Formatting Reports
