Help With ReportViewer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have several projects that require reports with data from multiple tables. I had been trying to build them in the imbedded report wizard in VS2008, but I can't get it to work right. So I downloaded report builder 3.0 and built one of them, it was a lot easier. But when I tried to move it from report builder 3.0 to VS2008 (by changing the file extension from rdl to rdlc), I received several errors. VS2008 was not able to render the report in design view, nor was it able to build it due to the 2010 report definition problem. So I downgraded to report builder 2.0, similar problem. I have been looking for Report builder 1.0, but have not been able to find a download for it anywhere. I've also been looking to upgrade the reportviewer to 10.0. I have been looking for some kind of solutin for days.

    I need one of the following:

    Download location for report builder 1.0

    Upgrade VS2008 reportviewer to 10.0

    convert the report to a 2005 report definition so that it can be render by reportviewer 9.0

    Pertinent information:

    Windows 7 (both 64 bit and 32 bit OS)

    Visual Studio 2008 standard (VB)

    Sql server 2008 exprees w/service pack 2

    No report server (and not planning on it as all of my reports will be ran from the local host)

    Any help with any of the possible solution would be appreciated.

  • Probably not the answer you want to hear: going from RDL to RDLC is not supported.

    Designing and displaying RDLC reports are indeed more complicated because the ReportViewer is a developer product. To find working samples on how to use RDLC reports, see http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/reportviewer.

  • Is there any program that can build an RDLC report that can be copy/moved into VS2008 Standard?
