Designing server-side reports in SQL Server Reporting Studio

In the next recipe we will create a report based on NAV data, but not connected to the NAV server or client in any way. Server-side reports, as the name implies, are rendered on the server and published on a web portal through IIS server. Users can access these reports simply in a web browser from any computer connected to the corporate network.

The process of developing a server-side report is very similar to creating a client-side one, except that the source dataset is provided by an SQL query instead of a NAV server instance.

In source files: folder NAV Report, Visual Studio solution NAVReport.sln.
