Report Builder will ship with VS Express versions !!


Outstanding !!    I’m not sure if I have this correct, but it sounds like with the Free version of Visual Studio (aka Visual Studio Express),  you can use the Free version of SQL 2005 (aka SQL Express), and have nice cool SQL server reporting goodness !!!

    My understanding is that all versions of SQL2k5 will all allow the reporting engine to run and that all versions except SQL Express will come with the report builder. So, the runtime on any version and the dev interface on everything except express.

    Thanks Andrew. That’s still pretty cool as you could have the "MSDE" 2005 and do client side reporting.
