Please excuse this newbie question as I have just installed SQL Server Express 2008 with the advanced features - more specifically the SQL Server Reporting Services.

I have been tasked with building a "Dashboard" of sorts to provide a multitude of reports. That does not scare me with the great product that SQL Reporting Services appears to be!

The catch - we need to brand the site to look exactly, if not really darn close, to our other web site also known as a "Dashboard."

Please direct me on where I can change the HTML produced by the SQL Reporting Services for the main navigation screens. I see the CSS files and see where to change colors and fonts etc. However, I need to add some additional javascript includes as well as <div> tags and add a row above the top header so we can add our branding with the logo and links to the other sites.

When I have searched Bing & Google as well as this forum and MSDN, most of the hits return how to produce an HTML formatted report. I have not even built a report yet and simply hope to change the HTML for the "Home" screens. The reports will come in time...

Thanks for any direction you may provide!

Chad

Chad,

I looked in to doing the same thing but couldn't find much other than it appears to be incredibly difficult, if not impossible.

An alternative to the out-of-the-box SSRS front-end:

http://crisscross.codeplex.com/

The developer was in a similar position and couldn't make the necessary edits and decided to create his own front-end for his reports.

Check it out and see if it helps.

Mark

Thanks Mark, I'll check out crisscross.codeplex.com.

After a bit of reading it appears the best way to have this type of functionality is to use the SSRS web services. Heck, I even saw a PHP based sample provided by Microsoft.

Thanks again for the reply!
