AdventureWorksOffline Report Samples

05/28/2010


The AdventureWorksOffline report samples are a set of predefined report definition files that use XML representations of data taken from the AdventureWorks databases. As a result, the AdventureWorksOffline report samples do not require an active connection to the AdventureWorks database. You can use these sample reports to familiarize yourself with individual features for authoring reports.
