SQL Server 2000 reporting services poised for January release


SQL Server 2000 reporting services poised for January release

Microsoft has set 27 January as the official release date for SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services.

Reporting Services was to be part of Yukon, the codename for the next version of SQL Server due out in the second half of 2004.

Microsoft announced a change of plans in June, and said it would deliver the reporting engine by the end of year as an add-on to SQL Server 2000.

The reporting services add-on is a business intelligence tool that allows users to create customised reports using the SQL Server database. The tool can pull information from a variety of data sources, including the SQL Server database, and generate, distribute and manage reports based on that data.

SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services will be available at no charge to licensed SQL Server 2000 users. An enhanced version of the reporting engine will be included with Yukon.
