The Reporting Services Tablix: One Component to Rule Them All

It's pretty much impossible to create a useful report in SQL Server's Reporting Services without using a tablix. What's a tablix, you say? It's the unification of the table, list, and matrix data regions--thus the name tablix--in a single component with lots of capabilities. It's a shape-shifter, morphing itself into a table, matrix, or a list based on your needs and whims. To understand and use Reporting Services effectively to build the reports users need, you'll need to have a solid understanding of this versatile component. During this Live Learning event, you'll learn the basic concepts of the tablix, see how to build useful reports with it, and learn about the properties it has to do some amazing things.
