SQL SERVER Reporting services and Winform application

I am developing a WinForm  application in vs2005 using vbdotnet and SQL Server.

I would like to use SQL Server Reporting for my reports instead of Crystal Reports.

I need to know if I can get the report designed in SQL Server Reporting services as a menu item in my WinForm application Menu bar.

Also, what are the drawbacks if I use Reporting services instead of Crystal Reports.

Please can anyone help out ...
Thanks.

Yes sure, but you have to create a new form and add a Microsoft Report Viewer control, where you then can choose the report you want.
