I’m very excited to see my first feature article published in SQL Server Pro Magazine titled Custom Programming to Enhance SSRS Reports; How to write a custom assembly and use it to build a dynamic report dataset. The article was posted online in April and featured in the July printed and electronic edition. SQL Server Pro (formerly known as “SQL Server Magazine” or “SQLMag”) is published by Penton Media and is the largest publication for the SQL Server community. Please read the article, download the code, work through the exercise and let me know if you have comments or questions.
I posted an early draft of this article in my blog last year titled Using Custom Assemblies in Reports to Generate Query Logic (parts 1 and 2). The code was cleaned-up and tech edited in the new article which I recommend as the most reliable source (not that I write bad code, mind you, but it never hurts to have a formal tech review.)
