SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services

I spent a couple of days at the beginning of the week attending a SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services course at ACE Training here in Auckland.  It's interesting to see how this product builds on previous MS stuff.  The dataset editor feels just like the SQL Server Enterprise Manager View designer, and the Table data region is just like the ASP.Net datagrid.  Makes it really easy to get to grips as you already know this stuff.  My biggest tip from the course - remember to backup your key that is used to encrypt the connection information in the ReportServer database!  To handle this you need to use the rskeymgmt.exe software for this.
