Ella Maschiach Reviews OfficeWriter v8 for SSRS

When it comes to OLAP, SSRS, and DWBI development expertise, few can top Ella Maschiach, so we were delighted when she elected to take OfficeWriter v.8 for a (very thorough) spin. 


SoftArtisans have approached me to write a review about OfficeWriter v8 integration with SSRS. Your first question would be: What's OfficeWriter? :)

OfficeWriter is an application that works with Reporting Services in two ways:

1. It allows you to design a report in Word or Excel and render it to an RDL

2. It allows you to take data from an RDL report and use it in a Word or Excel document

I believe just those two points hold within them quite a lot, but we'll get to that shortly.

I decided to try my hand at creating a report on Adventure Works data.

I won't go through how to build a report using OfficeWriter as that's explained in the site in much detail. I would say that it's a matter of half-an-hour, at most, of playing with the application for you to learn it.
