Hi tsql !
The report you are trying to make a copy, is this a sub report or contains a sub report, which might be redirecting through some URL;
Please try to share your RDL here, may be we can help you out finding the root cause of it.
Thanks, Hasham Niaz

Better go to the project folder and take a copy of the orginal report and rename it in the project folder itself.
In the ssrs - Goto reports --> Rightclick -->Add exisitng reports --> browse the report and add.
Then open the report.

Open the report code(Right click->View Code) and take a look into the
If you notice any xml issue, you need to correct it.
The other solution is copy the code of you your original report and paste the code in new report RDL.

are you making a copy of the report in visual studio? there is it easier and safest way to copy and rename. right click on the report, copy and paste in the project folder itself. Then rename it.
