  • Just wondering why do you want to use SQL Server 2005 when SQL Server 2014 is released?

    Start from the latest release - you will be more marketable.

    I think you can start from SSRS as this is the simplest of these 3. You can find lots of good articles and you may want to read articles in TechNet Wiki, in particular you may find these articles helpful

    (Hopefully someone will update this article with 2014 articles). I need to write a new blog post about it.

    Hmm, now that I checked the creation date of that thread no wonder the OP was speaking of 2005 at that time. I bet he is already proficient in all these technologies...

    Naomi,

    I guess you missed the fact that this question was posted in 2006 .And Ed posted now to just followup :) so OP pointed to 2005 database
