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.

Sample customer feedback

"Course manual looks really detailed and a great reference. Also glad that it includes some things that weren't necessarily covered in the course eg subscriptions. Excellent course overall. The trainer was really helpful and engaging. Used a lot of Wise Owl material online which is brilliant."

Matt Curley (NHS Digital)

"I did very much enjoy the course. The pace was good and there was plenty of opportunity to ask questions. I was slightly worried beforehand that I may be in the minority and there would be many things that I wouldn’t understand, but the group meant that this wasn’t a problem. I now need to have time to practice what I’ve learnt! Lunch in a restaurant was good too, it made a good break in the day to clear the mind for the afternoon session. Many thanks for all your help. I will certainly bear you in mind for any further training we may need. "

Ginny Lefebvre (Aiglon College)

"Will be back - probably for SQL."

Chris Bell (BSI Group)

Kayleigh Ougham (Imperial College London)

There are lots more where these came from (or just refresh this page to change the quotes shown).

There are no particular pre-requisites for this course, although a passing knowledge of how relational databases are formed will help. In particular, no knowledge of SQL is needed.
