    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.

    yah, still trying out to set up the report server in SQL 2005, initial trial on the BI visio studio failed, dunno why.

    Is the reporting services included in SQL 2005 express?

    "are those rocks up ahead?"

    I personally love it when non-developers write production sql. I have project managers who do it for word merges. i have report writers who do not understand group by. It gives me plenty of things to fix and server slow downs to diagnose.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.
