Experts:

True of False? I hope its that easy...but I'm using SQL Server Reporting Services 2008.

Can SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services GENERATE the same CHARTS as can be produced in Excel 2007?

Further is it a general rule that whatever can be produced in Excel, be recreated or produced in SSRS?

Not DUNDAS, but SSRS.....

Thanks

As a broad generalisation, yes that is true.  Using SQL you would produce tables of data and you can then create various charts and tables in SSRS based on that data.

That said, Excel can be a huge product and is used for a purpose, so my question back to you is what are you looking to do with SSRS?
