You can't put a date picker in a report but it can be used to select parameter values. RS2005 uses a date picker for date type parameters by default. RS2000 does not offer this. You can create your own parameter interface and report viewer using a Windows forms or web forms application in Visual Studio and use an intrinsic or third-party date picker control. It's a fairly simple programming task to build the report URL request with concatonated parameter values and then set the source of an IFrame control to render the report to a web form.

The table item has a BackgroundImage property that can be used to show an image behind its content.
