Skill Level Advanced
Thanks for joining me through this course on SQL Server Reporting Services. The goal of this was to get you familiar with all the significant elements and concepts of creating reports, using data sources and datasets, adding a table or a matrix, a chart or sparkline, working with parameters and security, and more besides, and hopefully you feel this was useful. Now, there is obviously more that can be done, particularly when it comes to starting to combine these ideas together to create your own larger reports. Well, one thing to keep in mind is that there is useful help available.
You'll find help systems both from the report manager website-- there is a help link at the very top-right--and in Report Builder itself, if you just click the question mark up here. The Report Builder help is very good indeed, particularly in areas that we can't or just wouldn't want to cover in a course like this, things like having a reference of all the available expressions. So make sure to keep this handy, because it helps a lot. And good luck creating your reports. See you next time.
