New Reporting Add-In for Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2005 Express

This one is flying under the radar — Thought I’d publicize it a bit: [Scroll to the very bottom]


“The Reporting Add-In for Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2005 Express includes a ReportViewer control, an integrated report designer, and a comprehensive API that lets you customize run-time functionality. You can use the control to add interactive real-time data reports to your ASP.NET Web applications. Reports can use data from any ADO.NET DataTable or custom Business object. You can create reports that combine tabular, matrix, and visual data in free-form or traditional report layouts. An integrated report designer is included so that you can create the custom reports that bind to the control.”

    Any idea if a similar add-in would be available for C#/VB Express?

  2. I haven’t heard of one…Sorry.

    Is the add in described above also suitable for integrating VS 2005 (Express Edition) with MS SQL 2000 Reporting Services? Im really stuck on this one, please help 🙂

  4. There are no "free" designers for use against SSRS 2000 — You must have the VS 2000 shell installed (by installing VS, VB, C#, whatever)  and then install the SSRS 2000 add-in (by running SSRS 2000 setup)
