February 2011 Archives

I’m working the forums this week and I’ve already seen several questions asking if SQL Server Express Edition is up to the task. Shown below are the Microsoft links to Express’ limitations but I would like to clarify just what the mean (and can’t say).

My new webinar/lab class launches next week on February 8-10. It’s the premier edition of a series of lectures and lab exercises that walk report developers through the process of learning enough Visual Basic to create serious report expressions for use with Reporting Services reports.

We follow the introduction to Visual Basic with an in-depth discussion of how to add code-based expressions to your reports, but more importantly, how to share the code between reports. The final session shows how to create managed-code DLLs that can be developed in C#, VB.NET or any .NET CLR language and leveraged by the report processor when rendering your report.

The mentored lab exercises walk you through the process of creating a Visual Basic test-harness, coding and debugging complex code expressions and finally, you’ll create your own sharable managed-code DLL that can be used in all kinds of deployed reports.

Here’s the link to the Progressive site.
