Reporting Services questions for a beginner. RRS feed

    I am very new to Reporting Services and have a few questions about it's usage.

    I've done some research on using SSRS in VS2010 and getting mixed signals that it can be used in VS2010 is that true?

    IF you can use it in 2010 can you use it if you have SQL Server 2005 and how would you get started, is it as simple as starting a New Project and go from there?

    THe purpose for these questions is I want to create reports in SSRS and want to know what it's capability are with what I have. The reports I'm creating will go on our website and are user sensitive so is there a way to create these reports based on the users login. Each user has certain areas of the website they can view and other areas they can't. I want to configure these reports the same way but I don't know if that is something that needs to be setup in SSRS when building the reports or if what the users login credentials on the existing site will control the reports once they are on the site.


    I'm also trying to import Excel spreadsheets into  Reporting Services and I'm not sure how that is done?

    Hopefully this makes some sense to someone and can assist me with these questions.
