Using Report Designer for Team Foundation Server Reporting
Report Designer is a set of graphical tools and windows that run within Visual Studio 2005. Report Designer provides a graphical interface in which you can define data sources and query information, place data regions and fields on the report, refine the report layout, and set up interactive features.
You should use Report Designer as your primary tool for building custom reports against the data warehouse. You can launch Report Designer from Visual Studio 2005. Report Designer data and design surfaces appear when you select a Report project or Report Wizard project template. Report Designer includes query designers and an expression editor. You also use the Visual Studio Toolbox, Solution Explorer, and Properties window when working on reports.
