If you’re new to SQL Express, Reporting Services, or databases in general, you’ll want to check out the SQL Server Express video series up on www.asp.net. I just finished watching them myself. These videos walk you through all the free tools you get with SQL Server Express edition. They show how to design a database, setup SQL Express and Reporting Services and walk through a variety of tasks like writing stored procedures and writing reports. Visual Basic developers will feel at home in the Reporting Services Report Designer because the expression syntax it uses is VB script. The site also has a lot of great ASP.NET videos for beginners with plenty of Visual Basic examples.
