Chapter 5. Exploring Reporting Services fundamentals

In Chapter 2, we describe the variety of features that Reporting Services provides in a complete reporting platform. Then, in Chapter 4, we describe how to install and configure all these features. In this chapter, it’s time to explore some of these features in each stage of the reporting life cycle. First, you learn about the design environments that you can use to develop reports, and then you learn how to work with a report using Report Builder. You continue your exploration through the life cycle by learning about publishing reports and performing common administrative tasks to manage content on the server. Last, you complete the life cycle by learning how to access your report online.
