Long time IT guy new to SQL Server BIDS. Took a great class from Brian Knight back in Dec, which is how I found this site. Forgive me if the answer is staring me in the face, but when I come to this site I have a tough time locating the appropriate forum category. For instance, I came out today looking for any conversation around using a package as a source for a report. I've exhausted Books Online and other available documentation, done what they've said, but am still having probs. So, I thought I'd come here to see if I could find my answer. I am greeted with a list of forums, but I see no sign of categories specific to Reporting Services. Using the top search box takes me out of the site out onto the web. Using the Search box in the lower right usually gives me zero results. What makes me think I 'm using this incorrectly is that I'll be staring at a topic listed to the left, e.g. "DDL Triggers", then I'll type "DDL Triggers" into the lower right search box and I still get zero results.
I don't want to clutter up the forums with unneccesary questions or redundant threads, but any help to get started would be helpful. I usually come here with very specific issues I'm trying to solve in the context of a pending deadline. I need to be able to easily drill to specific subject areas and topics. Again, if its there and I've missed it, then please accept my apologies and be kind enought to lay it out for me. Or, if I'm too much of a "Newbie" or don't fit the target profile of your site customer, let me know, but I suspect that is not the case. I hate being a bother, but I'd like to be able to tap into the collaborative and mentoring expertise of this site.
I'd be grateful for a reply.
