A quick follow-up to yesterday’s post on the release of Report Builder 2.0.  I just noticed this excellent walkthrough on the Dynamics CRM Team blog which shows you how to use Report Builder 2.0 with CRM 4.0.  Don’t overlook the fact that this requires SQL Server 2008 though, if you want to use your reports (including gauges and charts) inside the CRM application like this:

 

This Microsoft KB article confirms that CRM 4.0 is compatible with SQL Server 2008 but this may be a while down the line for many CRM users.  An alternative might be to use SQL Server 2008 on your reporting portal (perhaps together with SharePoint?) and use the CRM database as the data source?
