  • Hello Linda,

    You have a Standard Edition (not Express, as in subject) and here are SSRS = Reporting Service as well as SSIS =Integration Services and SSAS Analysis Services included, see Feature Compare: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc645993(v=sql.105).ASPX

    Just add SSRS as a new feature to your existing installation, if it not already exists and setup configuration, then you can immediately use it.
