Daily SQL Server 2008 New Feature – Day 17

 Every day for the next couple of weeks, I aim to highlight one of SQL Server 2008’s new features, simply for awareness. You can then go away and research the area and report back to me, we’ll then discuss how these new features can benefit us all.

Microsoft Office Integration

Making the users life even more manageable – SQL Server 2008 provides new Word rendering that enables users to consume reports directly from within Microsoft Office Word.

Also, the existing Excel renderer has been greatly improved to accommodate the support of features, like nested data regions, sub-reports, as well as merged cell improvements. This lets users maintain layout fidelity and improves the overall experience of using reports from within the MS Office world.
