Does anyone knows how to FTP a report from Reporting Services?

    Question

  • Does anyone knows how to FTP a report from Reporting Services?
    I have several FTP sites I need to send reports to, but I cannot find a way to do it.
    I have tried to search the net for the answer, but I keep reading that you can FTP a report.
    But It does not say how.

    Help!
    thank you drey

  • Hey Drey --

    Unfortunately, there is no direct support for this "built in" to SSRS. If you are willing to invest a little time, you can implement this functionlity yourself, however.

    You'll need to build something called a custom delivery extension (just like we have an email delivery extension and a fileshare delivery extension "built in"). The "FTP extension" would take the report that you get back from SSRS, login to some FTP site, and deposit it there. Again, this is all code you would have to write on your own.

    You might want to spellunk around on some SSRS sites (search gotdotnet.com, maybe) and see if someone has already written a prototype.
