PDF + SQL Reporting Services

Working with SQL Reporting Services has proved to be much easier than Crystal Reports. It's no big surprise that it integrates into M$'s products much easier. Since we're an exclusively M$ shop, that's good news for me.

What I'm currently working on is to create a mailing labels application for a web based GIS application. Basically, we want to provide a pdf that the user can save, or print with information pulled from a database. So, the GIS app will provide me with the Parcel Numbers, I'm going to take those and chuck them into a sproc and return a PDF.

I'm going to be coding a web application that will take a report name, parameters and then will return a PDF with the results.

I'll be posting more details as I code them.
