SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services streamlines the process of extricating meaningful reports from your data sources. Hitchhiker''s Guide to SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services picks up where the Microsoft documentation leaves off, providing report developers, database administrators, application developers, their managers, and report users with invaluable inside information on the workings of Reporting Services.

The authors--both Microsoft MVPs who''ve worked with the Development Team since the beginning--reveal hidden problems and workarounds as they steer you through each step in report installation, management, security, creation, and programming. You can start setting up simple single-server installations or web farms right away while gaining an in-depth understanding of every Reporting Services feature.

The special companion DVD includes narrated Camtasia(tm) video demonstrations that show you how to safely navigate the trickier parts of this technology. The DVD also includes the evaluation version of Reporting Services, Books OnLine documentation refresh kit, Service Pack 1, code samples, and much more. A special website provides book and technology updates, as well as new templates and add-ins.
