    Hi, I am just a bit confused. Now I am reaching Report Module. Do I need just reportviewer control (from toolbox) or SQL Server Reporting Services or both?

    Can I create both using Visual Studio Express 2013?

    Hello ngisteve1,

    Hi, I am just a bit confused. Now I am reaching Report Module. Do I need just reportviewer control (from toolbox) or SQL Server Reporting Services or both?

    It depends you how you want to set it up. There are two modes for this local and remote. In local mode you setup datasource using datasets in C# code. and the file extension is RDLC you don't need to setup SSRS in this case another in remote case is that you publish your report in SSRS and then set link of the report in reportviewer in this case the datasource and everything on how to fetch the data will be setup in the rdl file.

    Please see: http://www.aspsnippets.com/Articles/ASPNet-Report-Viewer-control-Tutorial-with-example.aspx (This is RDLC example)

    Please see: https://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertutorial/222/sql-server-reporting-services-ssrs/ (SSRS RDL example)

    Hope this helps.
