For those who havent tried sql reporting services yet, do it now, even if you havent got a server to deploy it to just load the developers bits for visual studio.  Even without the server option Its been so usful for me to write my adhoc data queries and data cleansing test routines  in this as it gets created as a standard project in VisStud and can be source coded, instead of snippets of sql all over the place.

But as a reporting tool its just fantastic and I havent even scratched the surface.

Databinder Warning:Actual SQL skills are required to use this tool.

Step away from the dataset.
