Is SQL Server equipped with its own reporting engine, and if so, what are its capabilities?

Yes, starting with Server 2005, SQL Server has its own reporting engine. SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) is a -based, enterprise-class reporting engine that offers a wide range of advanced reporting capabilities. SSRS can be deployed in two ways: as a standard SSRS deployment or as a SharePoint integrated deployment, which allows users to view SSRS reports within an existing SharePoint web site.

SSRS features include parameterized reports, report subscriptions, support for non-SQL Server data sources, custom and role-based security, and report drill down. Reports can also be exported in a variety of formats such as Word, Microsoft , PDF, and text (comma separated values (csv), etc. The Express edition of SQL Server includes SSRS reporting features, while the Standard, Business Intelligence, and Enterprise editions include many of the more advanced SSRS features.
SSRS can import report designs from other reporting engines like Microsoft . This import capability can aid in the smooth transition from Microsoft Access to a SQL Server-based solution by allowing you to seamlessly upgrade your Microsoft Access reports without having to create the underlying reports.
