    Hi sabarinathanitt87,

    May be permission issue when exporting to a folder. 
    You can try using temp folder as 

    string fileName = System.IO.Path.GetTempPath() + Guid.NewGuid().ToString() + ".pdf";

    then save to temp folder 

    reportDocument.ExportToDisk(ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat, fileName);

    or else refer:

    Hope this helps.

    Hope @ is not necessary.

    reportdocument.SetParameterValue("invoicenumber", invoicenumber);

    I had to do something quite similar.

    if you want to directly download the report without displaing it then

    //objReport.ExportToHttpResponse(ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat, Page.Response, true, "Test PDF.pdf");

    If you want to save to disk while the user is viewing the report on server's harddrive ( we had a feature that would save the reports that they've viewed and later user could download them on demand from their account :

    here is the stripped out version of the real code, as to cut of the clutter :

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    			DataTable tblOrderDetail = new DataTable("OrderDetail");
    			SqlCommand commnad = new SqlCommand("[dbo].[CustMultiOrdersDetail]");
    			commnad.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
    			commnad.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("OrderID", "10643,10692,10702,10835,10952")); // just for demo
    			ReportHelper.GetQueryResultFromNorthwind(ref commnad, ref tblOrderDetail);
    			CrystalReport1 objReport = new CrystalReport1();
    			ReportDocument doc = new ReportDocument();
    			CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = objReport;

                            //file name 'Test PDF.pdf' can be anything, you may also use GUID or something similar to get unique file name
                            //objReport.ExportToHttpResponse(ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat, Page.Response, true, "Test PDF.pdf"); objReport.ExportToDisk(ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat, "C:\\Data\\Testy.pdf"); // file path is just for demo }

    works for me 

    WebInventory.datasets.dsaccountreportTableAdapters.sp_reportinvetorymoveactaccountTableAdapter a = new WebInventory.datasets.dsaccountreportTableAdapters.sp_reportinvetorymoveactaccountTableAdapter(); Response.ClearContent(); Response.ClearHeaders(); ReportDocument rd = new ReportDocument(); rd.Load(Server.MapPath("~/reports/inventory/rptinventorymoveactaccount.rpt")); rd.SetDataSource(a.GetData().ToList()); rd.ExportToHttpResponse(ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat,Response,true,"exportreport"); rd.Dispose();
