I installed SQL Server 2014 with Reporting Services but I don't how understand how to create and publish a report so that users can run it on the report server on IIS.

These are the programs that have been installed when I search 'SQL':

  • SQL Server 2014 Management Studio
  • SQL Server 2014 Reporting Services Configuration Manager

Are these the only required programs to be able to create and publish reports? Which do I use to create a report?

Publishing a report has not changed much in SQL Server since 2005. Developing a report changed when SQL Server 2012 came out just with the tool that you would use. I would suggest you start out by going through the Stairway To SQL Server Reporting Services by Jessica M. Moss. After reading through that series I would suggest getting a book on SSRS, anything by Stacia Misner on the subject is a good start.

  • I downloaded SQL Server 2014 with Reporting Services, but within those 2 programs I have listed above I do not see the option to create a new report, design a new report, publish a new report etc. What am I missing? – Jack Jul 1 '15 at 12:50
  • @Jack A book that explains this all in more detail. You will not be able to get that level of information and help through a QA site. – Shawn Melton Jul 1 '15 at 15:01
