SSRS reporting

I need to create a SSRS Report in Visual Studio 2010. What are the steps to do so. The Wizard does not allow for you to build a query. I had the query pass on to me to create the report. How do I take the already built query (passed to me via email) and create the rdl (report).
Thanks

forget Visual Studio.

Load SQL server cd (run setup from net share...) choose the workstation and client tools (or equivalente in 2005 or 2008, cant remenmber the exact name).

you dont have (and cant unless your run Windows server) to install the server itself.

For SQL reports use "BIDS" not visual studio.

no, you have to install BIDS from the SQl server CD (or what ever source you have).

truste me, "been there, done that".

OK I trust you.....can I install VS2008 that does support BIDS ..... my issue is I am running everything off my lab top (small shop) and I don't want the full version of SQL 2005 or VS2008. So, can I just run the BIDS off of one of those? Or prehaps use the interpeise version?
Thanks,
