Ladies and Gentlemen:
Welcome to the SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services Beta Program! You have been invited to participate in the public beta of SQL Server's exciting new product release! If you've seen any of the features or functionality we've developed as part of Reporting Services, you know that this is going to be an extraordinarily exciting beta!
I've personally been using Reporting Service since its early builds about a year ago and it's transformed my idea of creating, managing and distributing reports and I've barely scratched the surface. We'd like to know what you think and that's why you're here. We're eager to hear your feedback, both good and bad, and we want to make sure it's got the quality level necessary to become your tool of choice.
Unfortunately, I don't have bits for you just yet, this mail is simply meant to welcome you and whet your appetite for the upcoming release. We are planning to distribute the beta in early October, so stay tuned. I'll be back in touch with more information on program logistics, how to use the beta newsgroups, where to get the bits and so on.
So once again, welcome to the program! I'll be back in touch soon and I look forward to seeing you in the newsgroups and hearing your feedback!
