Style Sheets with Reporting Services

Firstly sorry for not posting anything for a while, I can only blame spending too much time working and on my uni assignments – not much time free these days!

I stumbled upon a great post by Barry King, demonstrating a way of applying database driven style configuration to a set of reporting services reports, in the absence of any style sheet support in SSRS. It doesn’t rely on custom code (most people’s favourite way of implementing style configuration), but on a single dataset in the report.

Well worth a read if you have to keep a large set of reports looking consistent, especially when your users constantly require changes to the style. (As if they would do that?!)

Thanks to Barry for sharing the details: http://www.simple-talk.com/sql/sql-tools/reporting-services-with-style/
