Cumulative update package 9 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 hotfixes are created for specific SQL Server service packs. You must apply a SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 hotfix to an installation of SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2. By default, any hotfix that is provided in a SQL Server service pack is included in the next SQL Server service pack.

Cumulative Update 9 contains hotfixes for SQL Server 2005 issues that have been fixed since the release of Service Pack 2.

Note This build of the cumulative update package is also known as build 3282.

Administering a Report Server Database

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa972237.aspx

 Querying and Reporting on Report Execution Log Data

Reporting Services stores execution data across several tables in the report server database. Because the internal table structure does not present report execution log data in a format that is accessible to users, you should extract the log data and store it in a separate local report execution log database.

 Reporting Services Log Files

A report server uses a variety of log files to record information about server operations and status.

Webcasts

 Introduction to SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (Part 1 of 6) (Level 200)

This six-part series presents a comprehensive introduction to Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services for developers. This series is heavy on demos and coding, and light on Microsoft Office PowerPoint. No previous knowledge of Reporting Services is required. In the first webcast, we provide an overview of Reporting Services.

We start by using the wizard to build a simple report. Then we learn about the design tools in the SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio. Additionally, we learn about report delivery options, including URL access, the Web service, and the Report Builder.

 Introduction to SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (Part 2 of 6) (Level 200)

This second webcast looks in depth at techniques for delivering canned reports to end users, including URL access, subscriptions, and the Web service. These provide both a push model of report delivery, where a report is automatically delivered, and a pull model, where a user gets a report on an as-needed basis.

 Introduction to SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (Part 3 of 6) (Level 200)

This third webcast focuses on the Report Builder, a tool for ad hoc reporting. We start by examining the Report Builder Client, the tool that helps end users to create ad hoc reports. Next, we learn about the Report Builder Model Designer, a developer tool that allows creation of the business model that represents the underlying data structure.

 Introduction to SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (Part 4 of 6) (Level 200) 

In this fourth webcast, we examine some more advanced ideas surrounding report design. Learn how to create tabular reports, matrix reports, linked reports, charts, and sub-reports. This webcast also includes reports that use cascading parameters and dynamic SQL queries.

 Introduction to SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (Part 5 of 6) (Level 200)This six-part series presents a comprehensive introduction to Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services for developers. The fourth webcast in this series delved deeper into advanced reporting designs. This fifth webcast focuses on SQL Server Reporting Services extensibility. We demonstrate a custom data source for SQL Server Reporting Services that reads data that is not accessible through SQL queries. We also demonstrate techniques for including custom code in reports.
