    I have visual web developer 2008 express, I would like to create a customizable report using reportviewer control and vb.net.

    Can someone please help me get started, I can see the reportserver and have a sample report.

     Do i need to start a new website or new project? Also, which template do I need to use?

    Any help very much appreciated.

    Hi matthisco,

    From your information, I get that you want to display the report deployed on the report server via reportviewer control in remote module, Visual Studio comes with freely redistributable Report Viewer controls for embedding Reporting Services functionality into custom applications.

    Firstly, you should design your report in BIDS, then deploy the report on the report server, you might have already done this from your information. What you should do is To add the Report Viewer control to the Web page:

    1. Drag and drop the Report Viewer icon onto the WebForm design surface. The SmartTags panel for the control is automatically displayed.
    2. In the ReportViewer Tasks smart tags panel, in Choose Report, select Server Report.
    3. In the Report Server text box, type the report server URL. The default URL syntax is http://localhost/reportserver. The actual URL that is used in your installation might be different depending on how the report server virtual directory settings are configured.
    4. In the Report Path text box, type the fully qualified path of a published report. When referencing a report on a report server in native mode, the report path starts with a forward slash ( / ); For example: /Adventureworks 2008 Sample Reports/Company Sales 2008

    Brouswer the report via IE, you will see the report deployed on the report server.

    create a web site in visual web developer express. Create a report server project using BIDS(business intelligence development studio in sql server), create your report based on your requirement and deploy it inside your report server(url would be: http://ipaddress/reoprts). for deploying a report visit here

    now create a reportviewer control in your asp.net web site.

    set the reportserver url to the ip address of your report server url for report processing, for more info click here
