Choosing a Tool to Create Reports for Team System

You can create reports for Team System by using any tool that can connect to an analysis services database or relational database. For example, you can use Microsoft Excel or Report Designer to create reports for Team System. In most cases, Excel is easier to use, but you should use Report Designer if you want to perform one or more of the following tasks:

If you use Excel, you work with PivotTable and PivotChart reports. For more information, see Charts (Microsoft Office Online). If you use Report Designer, you work with a project in Visual Studio. For more information, see Report Designer (SQL Server Development Center).
