SQL Server Training / SQL Server 2012 Training
Report Builder 3.0 for SQL Server 2008 R2 and 2012
Accelebrate's Creating Reports with Report Builder training teaches attendees how to create, format, and customize SQL Server 2008 R2 or 2012 Reporting Services reports using the Report Builder 3.0 tool. This class is geared towards business analysts and data consumers who need to be able to successfully create reports on a SQL Server Reporting Services server.
Note: This class does not cover building reports based on Analysis Services multi-dimensional cubes. If this is important, Accelebrate's SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services for Report Writers (SSRS) course, which cover both report builder and report designer with various data sources would be recommended.
