SQL Server Cube with Report Builder 3.0

Dear Gurus

I am new to SQL Server and I have been using Report builder 3.0 (SQL Server 2008R2).

My question is if I create a cube in SQL Server 2008 R2 (for financial analysis reports) can Report builder 3.0 consume that Cube ? Meaning can the Report builder 3.0 use the cube instead of using simple Tables from SQL Server ?

Thank you

Yes, Report Builder can use an SSAS data source, you can then build your dataset from that.

I would suggest buying the book or ebook "SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services Blueprints" by Packt. It's a good read, not expensive, step by step with lots of diagrams, and the very first thing it does is add an SSAS data source.
