I really hate that someone has made it very difficult to create or edit a SQL Reporting Services (SSRS) Report. In the old days, when I worked with SSRS everyday, I simply used the Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS).
Now, you cannot find anything like BIDS in the newer versions of SSRS. I hate Report Builder and refuse to use it.
Last week, I followed instructions found online and installed Visual Studio Tools. And, I asked the IT department to reboot the SQL box late at night. This was all in an effort to find the latest equivalent of BIDS.
But, I cannot find this.
What in the world do I use and how do I find it?
Please help! I can't believe that this tool has been buried, in the newer version of SSRS.
Thank you! Much appreciated!
