SSRS 2012, Part 04 of 10: Expressions and Functions

with Don Kiely

In this course, you’ll learn the essentials of expressions, how to write and use them within reports. Then you’ll learn about the extensive set of built-in Reporting Services functions that you can use in your own expressions. In many cases, Microsoft has done the work of writing functions for common features, so why reinvent the wheel? Then we’ll wrap up the course by looking at how you can create your own custom functions, both one-offs for use in a single report as well as shared functions usable in multiple reports. This is a great way to extend Reporting Services so reports provide exactly the information your users need.
