What is the course outline for 55170: Writing Reports with Report Designer and SSRS 2016 training?
  • 1. Parameter Reports
  • This module introduces the use of the parameter in report writing. Parameters allow a level of self-service reporting wherein the report audience can choose the data to view (date range, department, geography, etc.).

  • Parameterized Reporting
  • Create Report Parameters
  • Modify Report Parameters
  • Provide Default Parameter Values
  • Provide Available Values for Parameters
  • Lab: Creating Parameterized Reports

  • Create Single Value Parameter Reports
  • Create Multi-Value Parameter Reports
  • Create an Available Values Parameter Report
  • Create a Parameter Report with Default Values
  • Modify Existing Parameter Reports
  • After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe the key benefits and features of report parameters.
  • Create parameterized queries and parameterized reports.
  • Create parameters which accept single values, multiple values, expose or hide the parameter value, provide a list of available parameter values, and provide parameters with default values.
  • Modify existing parameters and parameter reports.
  • 2. List Data Regions
  • This module introduces the list data region. List data regions allow report writers free-form control over their reports, whereas, table and matrix reports bind you to a table or matrix data presentation. This free-form feature affords the report writer the ability to truly customize the report.

  • Introducing the List Data Region
  • Create Reports Using List Data Regions
  • Modify Reports Which Use List Data Regions
  • Lab: Creating List Reports

  • Create a Multiple Column Report with List Data Regions
  • Create a Report with Rectangles and Nested Data
  • Create an Enhanced Report with Rectangles and List Data Regions
  • After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Describe the benefits of list data regions and rectangles in reporting scenarios.
  • Create reports which display data in multiple columns.
  • Create reports which take advantage of nested data.
  • Create enhanced reports using list data regions and rectangles.
  • 3. Enhancing Reports with Complex Expressions
  • This module introduces several new report formatting techniques which allow the report writer better control over the data displayed in the report.

  • Formatting Reports
  • Top N Reports
  • Running Values
  • Lab: Enhancing Reports with Complex Expressions

  • Create Conditional Formats for Data
  • Use Complex Expressions in Charts
  • Calculate Running Values in Table and Matrix Data Regions
  • Create TOP N Reports
  • Add Row Banding in Table and Matrix Reports
  • After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Create conditional formats for data displayed in a report.
  • Use complex expressions in charts.
  • Calculate running values for groups and datasets.
  • Create TOP N reports for groups and datasets.
  • Use row banding in a data region.
  • 4. Enhance Reports with Images and Subreports
  • In this module, students will add images and reports (subreports) to reports, tour and students will be introduced to SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services).
