Hello, I am very new to SQL and only got into it because of a need at my family’s auto repair shop. I need to extract data from an SQL-based program that we use and found that Report Builder would meet our needs.
I started by watching a video on Lynda.com called “SQL Server Reporting Services in Depth” by Simon Allardice. I realized this was over my head so I first watched “Foundations of Programming: Databases” also by Mr. Allardice. I now have a much better understanding of databases and SQL Server 2012.
My problem is that I can’t get my web browser to show the Report Builder icon.
I have been all over the internet trying to figure this out and I am stumped. I feel it is some kind of permission or security configuration…but I don’t have enough knowledge to figure it out.
In tinkering around with Management Studio (ran as admin), I have connected to my Reporting Services server but I am unable to add new roles or delete roles, and I am unable to select or deselect specific tasks.
All I want to do is get back to learning Report Builder but something isn’t right and I can’t figure it out.
Our business has 5 desktops that all have Windows 10 and share info via a homegroup. There is no need to share our reports outside of our physical location.
Thank you in advance for your help!
