Solved Reporting Function Question - Visual Studios

Posted on 2012-09-17

Had a quick question regarding Visual Basic .net functionality with Visual Studios 2010.

I am new to data reporting, and the querying segments of functions such as SQL and Reporting, but was wondering if there is any built-in reporting functionality that is built-in to Visual Studios (Instead of having to purchase Crystal Reports and set it all up).  

I am wanting to do some basic hands-on reporting to get a better idea of how it works.
I have been programming in for several years, but have never needed reporting functionality, but am at the point where I need to explore 'reporting'.

Please let me know what you recommend to get me started with 'Reporting' with in Visual Studios.

    There is a version of Crystal that is available (no charge) for VS2010

    There is also a reporting tool included.  I don't know much about it other than it creats RDLC files.
