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

The primary audience for this course are persons experienced with Report Designer and SSRS. The secondary audience for this course are experienced Report Designer (SSRS) report authors. Course participants may be business analysts, programmer analysts, data analysts, database administrators, or IT professionals.

  • Enhanced Visualizations Using the Rectangle
  • Control the Display of Report Items
  • Creating Tiles in a Tablix
Lab: Creating Enhanced Visualizations

Module 2: Visual Basic

This module introduces the Microsoft Visual Basic programming language. The goal of this module is to make the programming language and its use meaningful to non-programmers. This module uses the course handbook, group discussions, worksheets, and reviews to not only introduce Visual Basic programming, but to also to understand what the code is doing.

Lessons

  • The Visual Basic Programming Language
  • Visual Basic Language Components
  • Decision Structures and Procedures
Lab : Working with Visual Basic

Module 3: Using Visual Basic in SSRS Reporting

Report writers can take advantage of the Visual Basic language in three different ways in the Report Designer application. Whether the Visual Basic programming language was incorporated by design or inherited through existing reports, report writers need to be aware of how the features can be applied to achieve the reporting goal. Visual Basic is the required language for Report Designer.

Lessons

  • Visual Basic in SSRS Reports
  • Calling Visual Basic code from the Report
  • Using External Visual Basic code in a Report
