This section contains tutorials for SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services.
Reporting Services provides data-driven subscriptions so that you can customize the distribution of a report based on dynamic list of subscribers that will receive the report. Data-driven subscriptions are typically created and maintained by report server administrators. The ability to create data-driven subscriptions requires expertise in building queries, knowledge of data sources that contain subscriber data, and elevated permissions on a report server.
Follow the steps in this tutorial to learn how to create your first report. This tutorial shows you how to work with SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) to create a data connection (data source), define a simple query (dataset), and configure a data region to contain your data.
Follow the steps in this tutorial to learn how to use the XML Schema Definition Tool (Xsd.exe) to generate classes that allow you to serialize and deserialize report definition files (.rdl and .rdlc) with the Microsoft .NET Framework.
