    Hi matthisco,

    which template you need to use depend on your requirement, if you want to create a B/S project, you need web form template application, if you want to create C/S project, you need Windows form template application.

    Hope this helps

    create a project with your IDE. add a report viewer control to your page from toolbox, click on the top most right side triangle shape, design a new reeport.

    now create your repport based on your requirement and when you are done.

    just go to the page, and on your event such as button click.

    set the localreport property of your reportviewer control to your report.rdlc file

    set the refresh property of your reportviewercontrol.localreport.

    for more info you can see the link:

    Thanks very much for your reply.

    However, can you please tell me which template I need to use?

    I also cant seem to open the file using windows form designer in the tutorial you posted, Do I need to install it seperately?

    Many thanks

    just check the reportviewer control in your toolbox, it must be either inside the data tab or somewhere else in toolbox. once you drag it on your win forms you will find a triangle at the top most right hand side of this control, you need to click there and click design new report, now you create your report, please revert if you find any problem doing that.
