In point of coming version of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 it will be useful to prepare for SQL Server Reporting Services.But also using SQL Server Reporting Services with current releases is a great (supplement) benefit for developing customer reports.
These are some of the reasons why I started to use Reporting Services with NAV since 2 years ago when it first was mentioned in relation to NAV.Based on this experience, and my primary role doing partner readiness, I wrote a book which also covers an introduction in building reports with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and SQL Server Reporting Services.
The included examples and features are working on the current releases and also on the coming version.If you are a developer or designer so this can be an example guide for you to learning SQL Reporting Services in an easy way. (As example there is always a comparison of the SRS feature (wording) to NAV feature (wording) in the book)

I just want to do a quick plug for Rene's book.
The book really is worth buying. It is very good for those that understand earlier vrsions of NAV (eg 3.70 or 4.00) and need a jump start to catch up on 5.00. But most importantly its an ideal introduction to using reporting services with Navision.
I keep planning to review MICROSOFT DYNAMICS NAV 5.00.01 incl. SQL Reporting Services (and of course David Studebaker's Programming Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Joerg Stryk's NAV/SQL Performance Field Guide )
I will try to get that done before Convergence.
