    Good day to all. I have many .rdlc files we created using VS2008. We have now upgraded to VS2012. Is there a way to mass convert/upgrade the .rdlc files to the 2012 version without having to open each .rdlc manually and select yes to update, save, close report, rinse and repeat about 500 times?

    They sould continue to function properly with out upgrading. As long as they do I would only upgrade as needed. If one report needs updated formatting then I would upgrade the report.

    Only problem is the server is being upgraded to ReportViewer 2012. We have no say in what is being used. Just need a way to mass upgrade/update/migrate to the newer version.

    If they are embeded rdlc files and the server is upgraded they should still work fine... What really matters is what dll you are referencing in the applicaiton. If you still have to upgrade all of the rdlc files I do not know of a mass upgrade utility. Good luck
