  • While it's technically possible (it's just an XML file), doing so is another issue. I have worked with a number of developers who are attempting to generate RDLc reports programmatically--most of them are simply taking existing report templates (RDLC files already constructed) and altering some of the elements to meet specific needs. This is "simply" a matter of working with the XML DOM and (carefully) making appropriate alterations. Note that the RDLc used today is not the same as the SQL Server 2008 ("2nd Generation") RDL and cannot be imported into a VS 2008 SP1 project--not until the incompatibilities are fixed.
