Tech-Ed update: I passed exam 70-361
First, here at Tech-Ed 2007, I took and passed exam 70-631 - Windows Sharepoint Services: Configuration.  The test itself was different than I expected.  It focused a lot on network configuration and structure for a WSS deployment and not so much on the actual web app / site collection config.  Overall, it wasn't too difficult.  I now have a MCTS: WSS Config cert and a new logo!

Second, does anyone else think the chairs at the Orlando Convention Center are extremely uncomfortable?

Here's a few things I learned: The changes will be part of a SQL Server 2005 SP coming out a month or two after Office 2007 ships. Reports can be stored in Sharepoint document libraries and use Sharepoint's security, including report-level (like item-level) security ......

SSRS 2005 and Sharepoint Lists
SQL Server Reporting Services 2005 and Sharepoint WSS lists wierdness Here's a strange problem and how I got around it. I've been using SQL Server Reporting Services 2005 (SSRS) to do some reports based on data in a Sharepoint list. In the past I've had no problems getting all of the data that I needed, but for some reason this time SSRS just refused to get all of the columns from the WSS lists web service. There were 3 or 4 columns that were in the list, but would not return to the dataset that ......
