hi is it possible to create KPI's in SSRS 2005..if so how ? My source is from a sql query...
Watch Question

How are you defining KPIs?

can it be done via a select statement?

YOu can create a cube and define the KPI then use SSRS to report on the cube.

hi emes, cant we define KPI's without using SSAS cubes as the data source in SSRS ? I am using relational database table in SQL Server...

Well, I would think that is not possible.

For KPI's you must refer to the previous member, in a relational fashion you can't do that

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.
