In this 2-day course, students will continue their learning on the foundations of report writing with Microsoft SQL Server Report Designer and SSRS. The focus will be on report creation by connecting to a database and manipulating the data for presentation including: creating parameter reports, creating list reports, adding complex expressions to reports, adding images and subreports to reports, adding drilldown and drillthrough functionality, and adding sparklines, data bars, and indicators to reports. Report Designer is available for all supported versions of Microsoft SQL Server.

Course Details

Outline


Module 1: Parameter Reports
This module introduces the use of the parameter in report writing. Parameters allow a level of self-service reporting wherein the report audience can choose the data to view (date range, department, geography, etc.).
Lessons

  • Parameterized Reporting
  • Create Report Parameters
  • Modify Report Parameters
  • Provide Default Parameter Values
  • Provide Available Values for Parameters

Lab 1: Creating Parameterized Reports
  • Create Single Value Parameter Reports
  • Create Multi-Value Parameter Reports
  • Create an Available Values Parameter Report
  • Create a Parameter Report with Default Values
  • Modify Existing Parameter Reports
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Describe the key benefits and features of report parameters.
  • Create parameterized queries and parameterized reports.
  • Create parameters which accept single values, multiple values, expose or hide the parameter value, provide a list of available parameter values, and provide parameters with default values.
  • Modify existing parameters and parameter reports.

Module 2: List Data Regions
This module introduces the list data region. List data regions allow report writers free-form control over their reports, whereas, table and matrix reports bind you to a table or matrix data presentation. This free-form feature affords the report writer the ability to truly customize the report.
Lessons
  • Introducing the List Data Region
  • Create Reports Using List Data Regions
  • Modify Reports Which Use List Data Regions

Lab 1: Creating List Reports
  • Create a Multiple Column Report with List Data Regions
  • Create a Report with Rectangles and Nested Data
  • Create an Enhanced Report with Rectangles and List Data Regions
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Describe the benefits of list data regions and rectangles in reporting scenarios.
  • Create reports which display data in multiple columns.
  • Create reports which take advantage of nested data.
  • Create enhanced reports using list data regions and rectangles.

Module 3: Enhancing Reports with Complex Expressions
This module introduces several new report formatting techniques which allow the report writer better control over the data displayed in the report.
Lessons
  • Formatting Reports
  • Top N Reports
  • Running Values

Lab 1: Enhancing Reports with Complex Expressions
  • Create Conditional Formats for Data
  • Use Complex Expressions in Charts
  • Calculate Running Values in Table and Matrix Data Regions
  • Create TOP N Reports
  • Add Row Banding in Table and Matrix Reports
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Create conditional formats for data displayed in a report.
  • Use complex expressions in charts.
  • Calculate running values for groups and datasets.
  • Create TOP N reports for groups and datasets.
  • Use row banding in a data region.

Module 4: Enhance Reports with Images and Subreports
In this module, students will add images and reports (subreports) to reports, tour and students will be introduced to SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services).
Lessons
  • Add Images to Reports
  • Retrieve Images from a Database
  • Introducing SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services) Report Server
  • Add Subreports to Reports

Lab 1: Working With Images and Subreports
  • Add an Image to an Existing Report
  • Display Images from a Database in a Report
  • Format HTML5 Data to Display Properly in a Report
  • Use SSRS Report Server to Facilitate Subreporting
  • Add Subreports to a Report
  • Add Parameterized Subreports to Reports
After completing this module, students will be able to:
  • Describe the available options for adding images to reports.
  • Add images to reports.
  • Describe the features of SSRS Report Server
  • Add subreports and parameterized subreports to reports.

Module 5: Drilldown and Drillthrough Reports
This module introduces the ToggleByItem and Action properties to incorporate drilldowns and drillthrough reporting.
Lessons
  • Add and Configure Drilldown Reporting
  • Add and Configure Drillthrough Reporting

Lab 1: Add Drilldown and Drillthrough Functionality to Reports
  • Add Drilldown Functionality to Text Boxes

  • Describe the key features of drilldowns and drillthroughs in a report.
  • Add drilldowns to Reports.
  • Add drillthroughs to Reports.
  • Add parameterized drillthroughs to Reports.

Module 6: Sparklines, Data Bars, and Indicators
This module introduces the ability to create and add charts to reports. Whether through wizard or individual effort, chart reports or charts as report components allow us to visualize data with or without the details.
Lessons
  • Sparklines
  • Data Bars
  • Indicators

Lab 1: Adding Sparklines, Data Bars, and Indicators to Reports
  • Create Group Charts
  • Add Indicators and Data Bars to a Report

Exactly what we needed for our organization, at the right time, at the right price. We'll be back!

need to work on your evantage digital book, you can't get to individual pages without scrolling through entire book.

Great! Teacher was awesome! Really engaging and that is hard to do with IT related things.

This was my second course through ExitCertified, and it continues to be a great way to learn and advance my career!

Lot of material was covered in 3 days. Would be nice to have some more time to process the lab sections, especially.
