Beginners Tutuorial Needed Can not find anything on MSDN or Internet

    Question

  • Community:

    I'm having trouble finding a simple beginners tutorial to make reports in Visual Studio. This program seems to be the only way to move forward with the new job. All I find is fancy wording and marketing of languages. I should be able to find a tutorial that will help connect me to a server, access a database node, accesses tables, create a data set and build a report to run off of it. Any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks,

    Travis

  • Hi TravisTT,

    If you want to study how to make reports in Visual Studio, first step you should install SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) in your VS. Please down load from the following link:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/library/mt204009.aspx

    Then we will create a Report Server Project under Business Intelligence template. Please refer to the following link:

    There are six lessons about Report Server Project from MSDN documents may be helpful for you. Which include Creating a Report Server Project, Defining a Dataset for the Table Report, and Adding a Table to the Report and so on.

    Please refer to the following documents:
