    Hello Robert,

    I also am using Sql Server Express and need to create reports with VS Express.

    But is elapsed too mach time from the announce of Mr Flessner and Microsoft has'nt  yet extended SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services to Express Edition. Know you why?

    Besides I didn't handstand what is the difference between Reporting Services and Report Builder. Will I be able to create reports only with Reporting Services ?

    Thank you.
