Report Builder is almost identical to Reporting Services (the difference is that Report Builder allows you to create reports without having to download or learn Visual Studio). If you're not sure of the differences, speak to us and we can talk you through which application you should be using (or have a look here). 

This two-day course explains how to create reports in Report Builder 2016 (this is pretty much identical to Report Builder 3, so if you're using the older version you can still attend).  During the course you'll learn how to create tables, lists and matrices, format reports so that they look beautiful and add fancy devices like indicators and gauges.

We don't have any dates scheduled for this course, but we may well consider adding them - it's always worth asking & nbsp; (or consider an onsite Report Builder training course).
