Is it possible to retrieve a saved report with SSRS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm going to use the render method along with a streamwriter to save a report to PDF format before displaying it.

    Is it possible to use SSRS to display the saved report (It's an ASP.Net app and I would be using a report viewer control) rather than open the file with Adobe Acrobat Reader?

    If it's not possible for SSRS to retrieve the saved report would I have to rerun the render method with alternative parameters?

    I'm very new to SSRS so my skills in it are still a little weak!

  • Hi Neil,


    The report viewer control can only display the rdl files or the rdlc files. I think when creating the PDF report, you can copy the same one to the history which is stored in the report server. Therefore, the report viewer can display the history report from report server.


    Hopefully this helps.
