Hello All,

I had a question. If I install Sql server 2008R2 Express in my pc - will it come installed with SSRS  - I remember when I tried installing a year ago with SSRS - every time i tried login in to SSRS - it asked for server address of something - so my question is -

After I successfully install S Server 2008 R2 [Express] with advanced features - is there a way to install it in such a way that I can also use SSRS (reporting services) in a demo way and publish reports without connecting to any actual server -

Once again, I am  a novice, so excuse me if I was not able explain anything clearly .. and need some direction here....

Help is greatly appreciated


My goal is get started on SSRS with some hands on
