Posted by Andrew Gould on 24 July 2012

Learn how to get started with Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services. This video teaches you how to create your first Reporting Services project using either Business Intelligence Development Studio with SQL 2008 R2, or SQL Server Data Tools with SQL Server 2012. You'll see how to work in the Visual Studio environment, how to create simple reports and how to insert and work with basic report items such as text boxes.

You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:

Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.

 

When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.

Choose to change the video quality:

Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!

 

Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)?  You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
