Start Report Builder (Report Builder)

SQL Server 2014 Reporting Services (SSRS)  includes stand-alone and ClickOnce versions of Report Builder. The ClickOnce version can be used with Reporting Services installed in native or SharePoint integrated mode.

Note Note

Report Builder cannot be installed on Itanium 64-based computers. This applies to the ClickOnce and stand-alone versions of Report Builder.

If the ClickOnce version of Report Builder that opens is an earlier version of Report Builder, contact your administrator who can update Report Manager and the SharePoint site to use the SQL Server 2014 version of Report Builder

You can also use the ClickOnce version of Report Builder to create reports on a PowerPivot for Excel workbook that has been published to SharePoint. For more information about using Report Builder with PowerPivot, see Create a Reporting Services Report with PowerPivot Data on technet.microsoft.com.

To start Report Builder stand-alone from the Start menu on your local computer, you or an administrator must install Report Builder directly on your computer before the tool is available for you to use. The stand-alone version is not installed when you install SQL Server 2014; you must download and install it separately. To download Report Builder, see Microsoft® SQL Server® 2012 Report Builder.
