Older reports data sets don't make it into designer. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have some older reports that I need to maintain (I am not sure which version of VS 2005 they were originally developed on but I think it was SP1). In our current environment (SP2), when I view the layout or the preview of the report, everything is fine, but viewing the data tab causes the dataset to be reset to basically an empty query. From what I have read the XML schema for datasets changed somewhere before SP2 and the more recently created reports I am looking at have an rdBig SmileesignerState node in the XML where the older reports I am maintaining do not.


    My question is do I have to rewrite these reports or is there some way to "port" them over to the new schema?


    Thanks in advance
