I'm looking for an experienced person who can create some reports that are output to XLS using the Report Server.

In the required report, one tab will have raw data which is the easy part, the other tab will have preset filtering and functions already created in a template that will link the required to raw data.

The report will need to work on demand or scheduled.

If this is not the right place to ask, could you direct me to where to post.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Donald,

This is a public forum where you can ask the community for help. If you are interested in getting ready to use solutions, you may be interested in Telerik Professional Services (includes training, consulting, outsourcing and etc.)

In regards to your questions (technically).
Telerik Reports are templates that can be designed with the available Report Designers. The result is a .NET class inheriting Telerik.Reporting.Report or a TRDX file containing the serialized in XML Telerik.Reporting.Report object. The report must contain items bound to fields of the assigned data in order to display content - Quickstart (details how to create a report).
There are data source components allowing you to specify how data to be retrieved. For example, the purpose of the ObjectDataSource component is to provide data to the report in a declarative manner. The ObjectDataSource.DataSource should be the assembly qualified name or Type of the data access layer (class), where the reporting engine will use System.Reflection to create the instance of the class (by using its default constructor) and to execute its method specified by the ObjectDataSource.DataMember.
If you want to use already created data objects, you can skip the creating of a data source component.


  1. If you use Telerik Report Server:
    You can use SqlDataSource and CsvDataSource components. The Standalone Report Designer can be downloaded via ClickOnce in IE browser. Filters and groupings can be added on designing the report. Once the report is published, you can schedule it for export and sending in e-mails - Scheduling.
  2. If you use Telerik Reporting:
    Reports can be designed in the Standalone Report Designer and VS Report Designer. Then you can export reports programmatically and send them in e-mails. Note that the reporting engine does not include a scheduler and you will need to implement a service or other application executing the export logic - Send Telerik Report in an E-Mail.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Stef
