What is this blog about?
This blog is mainly about Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services and my tips, tricks and ideas for getting the best out of it.
To a lesser extent I’ll also blog about report design, data warehouses, other MS BI products, general development tips, reporting project management, and industry news.
Who is it aimed at?
I’ll be focusing on helping people quickly get what they need to do their reporting work. I won’t be delving into too much technical detail, but concentrating on practical solutions.
It may be of particular value to those from a non-technical background e.g. data/business analysts who it has fallen upon to provide a reporting service, though I hope there’ll still be something in it for intermediate/advanced users too.
Over the course of my reporting career I have encountered numerous occasions that needed a workaround or advanced trickery or just some help to achieve a requirement given the software available.
I thought these solutions would be of value to those in a similar situation, so here they are!
When will it be updated?
I aim to publish a blog post at the end of each week.
How much guarantee is provided?
As always with these sorts of things, your mileage may vary. This is a personal blog and is intended to share my personal experiences, but cannot guarantee to solve your own challenges.
Where possible, I will note to which versions of programs my recommendations apply. However, computer software is notoriously complex and slippery and what may work well with one setup, may not under almost identical conditions.
Furthermore (this is the legal bit) I make no representations as to accuracy, completeness, currentness, suitability, or validity of any information on this site and will not be liable for any errors, omissions, or delays in this information or any losses, injuries, or damages arising from its display or use. All information is provided on an as-is basis.
That said, I hope you get lots of value from it and achieve your wildest reporting desires!
