We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank (SSRS Reports on SharePoint Lists)

Now that we have released the SSRS integration in MOSS 2007 / WSS in SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2, people often ask whether they can build reports against data in SharePoint lists. Although this functionality is not built into SSRS, if you are willing to go pick up a 3rd party component, I have heard of several customers successfully using the Enesys RS data extension for SharePoint lists. If you want to go down the free software path, you might also check out this blog from Teun Duynstee. We will consider native support for lists in a future release.
