Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Javier Merino, and welcome to my course, SSRS Report Design and Data Formatting. I'm a civil engineer specialized in the business intelligence area for quite a few years. SQL Server Reporting Services is the reporting tool of the Microsoft Business Intelligence suite. In this course, we are going to learn the census about configuring our reports pages and to create and design on them several elements to show the data. Some of the major topics that we will cover include configuring the report pages, designing tables and matrices, designing different type of charts and formatting them, creating drill-downs and drill-throughs, and formatting data types. By the end of this course, you should be perfectly able to design a complete report with whatever kind of visualization you are required to. To configure ornate data levels, legends, colors, tool tips, etc, and to apply features like drill-downs or drill-throughs to make them more interactive for the final users. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn reporting services with the SSRS Report Design and Data Formatting course, at Pluralsight.
