You then don't need to worry about getting 'complex' with anything. It has cloud options and can cope with multiple data sources.

I would recommend you to have a look on these given site to study complex sql queries.:

Cbtnuggets is one of the great and convenient resource for sharpening your IT skills. Each topic is divided in nuggets  and are thoroughly covered. You will have a deeper understanding  of the concerned topic.


Lynda is also a very resourceful site which is specially designed for the beginner, but also who wants to sharpen their skill so if you want to learn any technical stuff just check out their courses of the topic that concern you.


Pluralsight formally know as trainsignal is for Pro user and they provided great resources to technical person who wants to sharpen their skills.


Note: All site are paid but gives you option to try for free.

Also remember that in most cases, sql will be a lot more efficient at creating calculated values
So if you need a calculated value (ex. Price+Quantity), create that field in SQL, then simply display this in the report...
Then benefit here is that now this calculated value is in the source, ...hence you don't need a report just to see the "total Price"
