Reporting Services: Two New (Free) Report Packs Released for Sharepoint and Axapta
Good news for the chap I met on the 'Ask the Experts' desk at TechEd, who was contemplating jumping through all sorts of hurdles to create reports form Sharepoint data. I couldn't really get my head round the (Sharepoint) problems he foresaw, but I was able to tell him that a report pack was in the pipeline to do just what he wanted, without any agro. So here it is, along with a report pack for Axapta (about which I know almost nothing).
