There are many reasons for reporting in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011.
There are many ways to view, understand and place data into perspective when it is compared with other data. Reports are used to view and record the details, and charts are used by consumers of the data to quickly view a snapshot of the information.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM includes a number of reports that provide useful business information. These reports are based on Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, and provide many of the same set of features that are available for the Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services reports.
Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) is the primary tool used to create or modify SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) reports. The end result of an SSRS report is an .rdl file that contains the report definition imported into Microsoft Dynamics CRM to view reports.
Creating Fetch XML-based reports is similar to creating SQL-based reports. Data regions, data visualizations, and report formatting are applicable to FetchXML-based reports regardless of the querying technique
