    Hi,

    Can the pages that are shown by SQL Server 2005 reporting services be
    customised. The pages that are shown are rather "techy" looking. I want to
    change some of what is on there for my users' requirements and also be able
    to badge with corporate colours, logos, etc.

    Thanks

    David

  2. David,

    The short answer is Yes.

    The long answer is - there are multiple ways of skinning the cat, with
    varying degrees of complexity.

    The Reporting server is a .Net application running in IIS and you can modify
    web assets there, including images and style sheets. There is a limit to how
    much you can accomplish this way, though. Alternatively, you can build your
    own custom front-end and use either the HTML or the Web Service interface to
    interact with the report server. As you can see from one of my past
    projects, you can even write a Java frontend and proxy to RS:
