This module introduces the Report Builder application and its features. You will explore the Ribbon and its Tabs, Command groups, and Commands, the available Window panes for creating and manipulating reports, and the report design surface using Design and Run modes.


  • Introducing the Report Builder Environment
  • Working with Existing Reports
  • Lab 1: Exploring the Report Builder Application

  • Navigating the Ribbon and Window panes
  • View Existing Reports in Design and Run modes
  • After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe and navigate the graphical elements of the Report Builder application.
  • Work with existing reports and navigate between Design and Run modes.
  • This module introduces how to populate a report with data and display that data in a table data region on the report. We will begin with defining the data source and continue with query building through data sets to bring data into the report. Next, we will explore the elements of the tablix data region including rows, columns, cells, handles, and field choosers, you will use in displaying your data.


  • Create Report Data Sources
  • Create Report Datasets
  • Work with the Tablix Data Region
  • Create a Table Report
  • Lab 1: Creating Table Reports

  • Create Queries Using the Report Builder Query Designer
  • Create a Table Report Using a Single Table
  • Create Table Relationships Using Query Designer
  • Create a Table Report Using Multiple Tables
  • After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Create report data sources.
  • Create report datasets.
  • Work with the tablix data region.
  • Create a table report
  • This module introduces report formatting techniques which allow a report writer to control how and where data displays in the report. Additional data may also be required and this can be accomplished by adding data from a source or adding a calculated field to the dataset. Simple and complex epressions will also be introduced in this topic.


  • Formatting Reports
  • Sorting and Filtering Report Data
  • Adding Data to a Dataset
  • Creating Simple Expressions
  • Creating Complex Expressions
  • Lab 1: Formatting Reports

  • Format Tablix Columns
  • Format Data in a Tablix Cell Using Properties
  • Format Data in a Tablix Cell Using Simple and Complex Expressions
  • Sort Data Using Expressions
  • Use Simple and Complex Expressions to Display Data in a Tablix
  • After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Format data in a report using the Report Builder Properties dialog boxes.
  • Add data to a report and make changes to column names in the dataset query.
  • Format data in a report using simple and complex expressions.
  • Display data in a report using simple and complex expressions.
  • This module introduces data groupings in reports using dataset fields and using expressions. This module also discusses group hierarchies and adding aggregates to summarize grouped data.

  • Group data in reports using expressions.
  • Create group hierarchies.
  • Aggregate grouped data in a report.
  • This module introduces matrix data regions which are used in reports to control how crosstabular data can be used. While table reports rely on rows and columns, matrix reports rely on row groupings, column groupings, and aggregated values.

  • Creating and Modifying Column Groups
  • Lab 1: Creating Matrix Reports

  • Create Matrix Reports
  • Create Column Groups
  • Use Expressions to Sort Group Data
