SQL Server Express and Reporting Services

A common question that gets asked is if SQL Serve Express supports Reporting Services. Yes it does however you need to install the version Advanced Services which can be downloaded from here.

In addition to the usual restrictions you get with the Express version you can only use Reporting Services against you local express database i.e. you cannot install SQL Express and then use it’s Reporting Service against a database on another server.
