TechEd session: Tips and tricks for building rich reports

Here's a recording of my TechEd 2012 North America session last week in Orlando:

Tips and Tricks For Building Rich Reports

The entire session is based on Report Builder 3.0. All content is relevant to both SQL 2008 R2 and SQL 2012.

Topics covered:

  • Use a tablix to organize data how you want it
  • Use colors and graphics to emphasize data
  • Choose the right visual for what you're trying to communicate
  • Add clipboard data using an XML data source
  • Integrate related data using the Lookup function
  • Display short lists using the LookupSet function
  • Optimize output for Excel

Hope you enjoy!
