Developers Are from Mars, Report Servers Are from Venus
Speaker: Doug Lane
At first, you loved working with Reporting Services, but now the honeymoon's over. What good are charts and tables when Reporting Services won't tell you what's wrong, renders too slow, and messes up your layout? You may be thinking about seeing other reporting products, but don't give up.
In this couples therapy for you and Reporting Services, rekindle your passion by reviewing how reports perform best, seeing what the report server has been trying to tell you (but you haven't been listening), and discovering new and simple tricks you never knew your reports could do. You'll learn about the following and more:
• Dealing with blank extra pages
• Designing reports for high performance
• Powerful properties for precise layout and appearance
• Troubleshooting using the execution log
After this session, you'll want to spend some time alone with your new old flame.
