    Is it possible to call a report from .asmx and create a pdf file automatically?

    I managed to do it in a normal web form but my boss wants to do it from .asmx.

    In the web form I added a reportviewer but not sure how to do it from webservice.

    Hello whisky,

    Have you tried adding reference to Mircosoft.ReportViewer.WebForms in the webservices. I did a quick test and I want able to create an instance on Report Viewer in webservice.

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Web;
    using System.Web.Services;
    using Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms;
    namespace WebApplication1
      /// <summary>
      /// Summary description for WebService1
      /// </summary>
      [WebService(Namespace = "http://tempuri.org/")]
      [WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)]
      // To allow this Web Service to be called from script, using ASP.NET AJAX, uncomment the following line. 
      // [System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptService]
      public class WebService1 : System.Web.Services.WebService
        public string HelloWorld()
          ReportViewer rp = new ReportViewer();
          return "Hello World";

    Then use LocalReport.Render Method to generate pdf.

    Hope this helps.

    With Regards,
