3 Advanced Report Writing, Part I Part I Objective In Part I of this workshop, we will cover the following areas: 1. Database Concepts and Terminology 2. Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 3. Simple Queries Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 4. Refining Queries Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 5. Multiple Table Queries Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Pre-Workshop Steps Before beginning this workshop, you must first reset the BID2WIN and BUILD2WIN databases on your lab workstation. Please complete the following steps prior to beginning this lab: On your workstation desktop, double-click the Reset Lab Databases icon and wait for the DOS window to appear. This step returns the BID2WIN database to its original state, wiping out changes made by the previous user. Page 2

4 1.1: Database Concepts and Terminology Reports in both BID2WIN and BUILD2WIN, whether standard, custom or user-created, are all based on the respective Microsoft SQL databases. Before delving into report writing for these products, it is important to have at least a fundamental of database terminology and concepts. In this part of the workshop, we will review some of those basic concepts and the tools used in report writing. After familiarizing ourselves with these database essentials, our first exercise will be creating a query of one of our SQL databases using Management Studio. Database Basics Common Database terminology All BID2WIN products use Microsoft SQL Server and are based on transactional databases Databases are made up of tables-that are related Tables contain unique identifiers (ObjectIDs, Refs) Overview of BID2WIN and BUILD2WIN Databases BID2WIN - The BID2WIN database is normalized and is not suitable for reporting, instead we use BID2WIN Management Reporting, which uses a Data Warehouse (and can contain data from multiple BID2WIN databases) BUILD2WIN The BUILD2WIN database use filtered views, which calculate calculated values and store denormalized data. Data is in real time and the data is secured. Tables and non-filtered views are locked-down so only database administrators can access them.

5 1.2: Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio is the tool of choice for viewing database structure and content. In addition to providing a means to access tables in a database, it provides a platform to query databases to extract just the data that is most meaningful to us. Exercise: Examining a Table Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio A. To launch the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, simply double-click the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio icon on the desktop of your lab workstation. The Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio appears. NOTE: In the real world the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio icon would be found in the Microsoft SQL Server (2005 or 2008) folder in the All Programs menu on the server that hosts the databases. B. With Management Studio open, you will now connect to the instance that contains your BID2WIN and BUILD2WIN databases by clicking Connect. NOTE: In the real world you may have other applications that use Microsoft SQL. Ensure that you are connecting to the instance that hosts your BID2WIN and BUILD2WIN databases Page 4

6 C. Expand the Databases shown in the tree view on the right side of the screen by clicking on the + sign to the left of the folder. With the folder expanded, you will see your B2WData database along with your B2WDataWarehouse and BUILD2WIN databases. D. Expand the B2WDataWarehouse by clicking on the + to the left of the folder. You will now see subfolders. Expand the tables subfolder by clicking on the + sign. E. Right-click the table called dbo.estimate and select Open Table. The table will open on the right side of the program. This particular table has seventy columns of information with a row for every estimate created. Use the scroll bar below the table to peruse data. The rows and columns that make up the estimate table contain a large amount of information about the estimates in the database. Page 5

7 F. At this point, please feel free to ask any questions you may have. After the brief question and answer period, we will proceed to the next exercise. Page 6

8 1.3: Simple Queries Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio While viewing the contents of a table can be useful, a single table may provide too much information to be useful for most users. To extract the data we are seeking in a more meaningful form, we must create a query. Exercise : Creating a Simple Query Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio A. Click once on the B2WDataWarehouse in the tree view on the left side on Management studio to select it. Next, click New Query in the upper left of Management Studio. This open a blank query page on the right side of the program Page 7

9 B. In the blank query page on the right, right-click and select Design Query in Editor. This will open the Query Designer, a graphical interface that we ll use to create our queries. C. The Query Designer automatically opens with the Add Tables dialog box. From the list of tables, highlight Estimate and click Add. (Alternately, you can double-click on a table to add it to you query.) Once you have added your estimate table, click Close in your Add Table dialog box. NOTE: You can resize the Query Designer by dragging the lower right corner diagonally. Page 8

10 NOTE: The Query Designer, by default, displays three panes. On top pane is the diagram pane that holds the table diagrams. The middle pane contains the criteria pane that allows the user to change the order that information appears and to apply filter and sorting options. The bottom pane displays the actual SQL query that will be applied. Page 9

11 D. We are ready to create our query. For this exercise, we will query the table to get profit by customer. Check the boxes to the left of JobNumber, PrimaryCustomerName and TotalProfit in the estimate table Page 10

12 E. Click OK in the bottom right of your Query Designer. This closes the designer and writes the query in the T-SQL language for us. F. Click Execute. This will run the query you created and return your results in a grid view below. G. At this point, please feel free to ask any questions you may have. After the brief question and answer period, we will proceed to the next exercise using the query we just created. Page 11

13 1.4: Refining Queries Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio While our query has eliminated the data in the table that we did not need, it occurs to us that our query is displaying profit amounts for every estimate we have created. To see profit amounts for just those jobs that we won, we will make a change to our query. Since every job that we won has a job number assigned to it, we ll use this field to filter our query. Exercise: Refining a Query Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio A. In the blank query page, right-click and select Design Query in Editor. Add the Estimate table and close the Add Tables dialog box. Check the boxes to the left of JobNumber, PrimaryCustomerName and, TotalProfit. B. Note that in the Criteria section of the Query Designer, the three table columns we selected are present. In the JobNumber row, add <> to the Filter column box. This tells SQL that we only want data from estimates whose job number field is not blank. NOTE: Where did the N come from in the filter box above? It was added automatically by the Query Designer. It is an indicator of the data type, nchar. C. Click OK to close the Query Designer and create your query, and then click Execute. D. The results are displayed for all estimates with a job number. E. At this point, please feel free to ask any questions you may have. After the brief question and answer period, we will proceed to the next exercise using the query we just created. Page 12

14 NOTE: To edit an existing query without having to add tables and select columns: Highlight the T-SQL query and press Ctrl-x to cut it from the query page, returning it to its blank state. Right-click and select Design Query in Editor. Close the Add Tables dialog box without selecting a table. In the SQL pane of the Query Designer, highlight SELECT and FROM that appear by default and paste your previous query into the pane by pressing Ctrl-v. Click in the Diagram pane. Your previous query information will populate the Query Designer. Page 13

15 1.5: Multiple Table Queries Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio As we know, a database is made up of multiple tables of information. In order to extract the needed information from a database, the user will likely have to query multiple tables. Up until this point, we have been able to extract all the information we need from our dbo.estimate table. Suppose we wanted to find our customers city and state and add it to the results of our query. A quick look at our estimate table shows that primary customer city and state are not included in the table. However, that information is included in the dbo.customer table. To extract the city and state relevant to our customers in our estimate table, we will create a join to link the two tables for our query. As previously discussed, we use ObjectIDs and Refs to join tables in a query. Exercise: Querying Multiple Tables Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio A. Create a new query, right-click in the query page and select Design Query in Editor. Add the Estimate and Customers tables. B. Note that a bar joins both tables, running from ObjectID in the Estimate table to ObjectID in the Customer table. This is a default behavior in Query Designer but, unfortunately, this join is not correct for our purposes. Right-click on the bar and select Remove. Page 14

16 C. In the Estimate table, select JobNumber, PrimaryCustomer and Total Profit. In the Criteria pane, add <> to the Filter column box for JobNumber, as we did in our previous exercise. D. While in the Criteria pane, let s set the sort order for our results. Go to Sort Type in the Primary Customer row. Drop down the arrow and select Ascending. Note that the Sort Order automatically is assigned the number one. If we had multiple sort types, we could select the order of the sort in this field. E. In the Customer table, select City and State by checking the box to the left of the field names. F. We can rearrange the order of the results and rename any fields in the Criteria pane. Select a field by clicking to the left of Column. With your mouse button depressed, move the field up or down, as needed. We will order our columns as follows: PrimaryCustomer, City, State, JobNumber and TotalProfit. G. Next, in the PrimaryCustomer field, go to the Alias column and enter Customer. In the JobNumber Field, enter Job Number and in the Total Profit field, enter Profit. H. Click OK to close the Query Designer. Click Execute and view the results of your query. Page 15

17 I. At this point, please feel free to ask any questions you may have. After the brief question and answer period, we will proceed to the next exercise. Page 16

18 Part I Summary In Part I of this workshop, you performed the following exercises: Examining a Table Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Creating a Simple Query Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Refining a Query Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Creating a Query with Multiple Tables Using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio We will now take a quick break before beginning Part II. Page 17

19 Advanced Report Writing, Part II Part II Objective In Part II of this workshop, we will cover the following areas: 1. Report Manager in Management Reporting (Reporting Services) 2. Creating Reports with Report Builder 3. Grouping Fields in Report Builder 4. Formatting Reports with Report Builder 5. Aggregate Fields in Report Builder 6. Filtering Fields in Report Builder 7. Creating Reports in Excel Page 18

20 2.1: Report Manager in Management Reporting (Reporting Services) Report Manager is a browser-based tool developed by Microsoft as a means of accessing reports and their properties. It provides a means of configuring different settings for individual reports as well as for access to the manager itself and a tool for creating reports, Report Builder. Exercise: Exploring the Report Manager in Management Reporting (Microsoft Reporting Services) A. Double click the Management Reporting icon on your desktop. Your browser will open to the Report Manager. B. BID2WIN Management Reporting reports will be listed in Report Manager. Depending on the configuration of the server, a BUILD2WIN folder may be included with the list of reports. Clicking on the BUILD2WIN folder would display the reports in BUILD2WIN. (For our lab, BUILD2WIN has its own separate instance of Report Manager) Page 19

21 C. There are three key areas of Report Manager that we will use in subsequent exercises-show Details, Upload File and Report Builder. D. Click Show Details. E. This provides an expanded view on the reports that includes an icon to access a report s properties. The properties area allows us to save and update report definition files and configure the report s data source. Click the Properties icon for the Bid Schedule report. Page 20

22 F. The properties of the Bid Schedule report are displayed. Note the Report Definition edit and update links as well as the Data Sources link that we will use in subsequent exercises. G. Click on Home, directly below BID2WIN Management Reporting at the top of the page to return to the home page. H. At this point, please feel free to ask any questions you may have. After the brief question and answer period, we will proceed to the next exercise. Page 21

23 2.2: Creating Reports with Report Builder In addition to providing us with access to our BID2WIN and BUILD2WIN reports, Report Manager includes a tool for building reports that can then be added to Report Manager and, if desired, BUILD2WIN. Exercise: Creating a Report Using Report Builder A. From the home page of Report Manager, click Report Builder. NOTES: Reports created with Report Builder are based on the BID2WIN and BUILD2WIN report models. Report models must be installed and configured in Report Manager prior to creating a report. The current report models are available for download on the BID2WIN support site. The report model is a user-friendly description of an underlying database, with preestablished data relationships and auto-generated queries. The purpose of a report model is to remove the need for specialized knowledge of the underlying database schema and query language. Report models manage building queries, data source connections and authentication, expressions, filters, and parameters for the user, allowing business users to focus on report design. Page 22

24 B. In Report Builder, select the BUILD2WIN Model 2.0 and click OK. Page 23

25 NOTES: There are three prime areas that we will be using in Report Builder-Entities(1), Fields(2) and the Design Area(3) By selecting an entity, any fields available in that entity may be added to the design area. Once and entity is selected, additional sub-entities will be available along with some additional fields. Page 24

26 C. On the upper left side of Report Builder, select the entity Filtered Field Log Employee Job Account. Note that the list of fields below changes to reflect those fields that are in this entity. D. From the list of Fields, hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and select the following fields by clicking once on them- Account Account ID, Account Description, Double Time Hours, Employee Full Name, Job Job Number, Overtime Hours, Regular Hours and Total Hours. Page 25

27 E. Drag the selected fields to the designated box on the design portion of Report Builder. Page 26

28 G. In the Entity area of Report Builder, a list of sub entities appears under the Filtered Field Log Employee Job Account entity initially selected. Click on Field Log Employee REF. A new list of fields is presented in the Fields area below. Select Labor Type Name and drag it to the design area with the previously added fields. H. Arrange the fields in the following order by dragging them to the appropriate place in the design area: Job Job Number, Labor Type, Employee Full Name, Account Account ID, Account Description, Regular Hours, Overtime Hours, Double Time Hours and Total Hours. Page 27

29 I. Click Run Report and view the report. I. At this point, please feel free to ask any questions you may have. After the brief question and answer period, we will proceed to the next exercise. Page 28

30 2.3: Grouping Fields in Report Builder Currently, all of our fields are in one large group. By breaking out one or more of the fields into their own group, we can change how the results appear. Exercise: Change the Field Grouping in Report Builder A. Click in the JobJobNumber field in the design area. Holding down your mouse button, drag the field to the left until you see a blue bar. Release you mouse-note that JobJobNumber is now in a group of its own. B. Click Run Report. Data is now grouped by Job Number. Page 29

31 C. Create a separate group for Labor Type Name by moving the field to the left in the design area. Repeat the process for Employee Full Name. Click Run Report to view the results. J. At this point, please feel free to ask any questions you may have. After the brief question and answer period, we will proceed to the next exercise Page 30

32 2.4: Formatting Reports with Report Builder Although the report we created is producing the data we wanted to see, the report must be formatted before it is ready for general use. Exercise: Formatting in Report Builder A. Click in the text box above the fields in the design area and enter the following title Labor Hours by Job. Highlight the text and click Bold in the menu bar above. B. The blue textboxes contain the column names in the report. Change Job Job Number to Job Number, Labor Type Name to Labor Type, Employee Full Name to Employee Name and Account Account ID to Account ID. C. Select the Regular Hours value field in the design area. Right-click and select Format. Reduce the decimal places to 1. Repeat the process for the Overtime and Double Time values fields. Page 31

33 D. Adjust column widths, as desired, by moving the column divider bars to the left or right. E. Click Run Report to view the results. Page 32

34 F. At this point, please feel free to ask any questions you may have. After the brief question and answer period, we will proceed to the next exercise. Page 33

35 2.5: Aggregate Fields in Report Builder The current report displays all the data that we want to see. However, in might be helpful to add subtotals for total hours. Subtotals in Report Builder are automatically created when an aggregate field is added to the report. Exercise: Creating an Aggregate Field in Report Builder A. Click on New Field, located in the upper right area of the field list on the left side of the screen. B. In the Define Formula dialog box, type Total Labor Hours in the field name textbox. Page 34

36 C. Click the Functions tab and expand Aggregate by clicking on the +. Select Sum by double-clicking. Page 35

37 D. In the Define Formula dialog box, click on the Fields tab. Scroll down and double-click on Total Hours in the field list. This will insert the Total Hours field name after Aggregate in the formula area of the dialog box. Page 36

38 E. The newly created aggregate field is added to the field list. F. Drag the field to the last position in the design area, to the right of the existing Total Hours field. Note the subtotal rows added to the report, below the Total Labor Hours field. Page 37

39 G. Click Run Report to view results. Subtotals now display for each of the groups in our report. Click on Design Report to return to the previous screen. H. Delete the Total Hours field originally added to the report. Format the Total Labor Hours field to display two decimal places. Repeat the formatting for each of the aggregate value fields in the blue rows. I. At this point, please feel free to ask any questions. After the brief question and answer period, we will proceed to the next exercise Page 38

40 2.6: Filtering Fields in Report Builder Adding filters to our report will allow us to eliminate data that we do not wish to see. Exercise: Filtering Data in Report Builder A. Click on Filter, located in the upper right area of the field list on the left side of the screen. Page 39

41 B. Drag the Total Labor Hours aggregate field to the white area on the right of the Filter Data dialog box. C. In the Filter Data dialog box, click on Equals and select Greater Than from the list of options. Enter 0 in the textbox, replacing (unspecified). Page 40

42 D. Click Run Report to view results. Subtotals now display for each of the groups in our report. Click on Design Report to return to the previous screen. E. Click on Filter to open the Filter Data dialog box. Drag the Job Job Number field under the existing Total Labor Hours filter. Right-click on the field name Job Job Number and select Prompt. Click OK to close the dialog box. F. Click Run Report to view results. G. At this point, please feel free to ask any questions. After the brief question and answer period, we will proceed to the next exercise. Page 41
