  • Hi Silna,

    Currently there is not document about version compatibility of Report Builder. The Report Bulider 3.0 is the latest version and is first available in Reporting Services 2008 R2. Based on my test, it continues to be supported in Reporting Services 2012, but it not supported in earlier SSRS versions, like SSRS 2008 and SSRS 2005.

    You can check the link as ReportCreator post above to install the Report Builder 3.0 for SSRS 2012.

    The following article is about the new feature in Report Builder for SQL Server 2012, please refer to:

  • Hi,

    where can i confirm this ? i did google on this but could not find any link which states that the Report Builder 3.0 is been used for SQL 2012(SSRS).

    All i found is that the report builder in SQL 2012 is more updated as compared to the report builder 3.0 in SQL 2008 R2(SSRS)

    please guide if u have any idea on this ..

  • Interestingly none of the blogs/download links of SQL Server 2012 explicitly mentioned the version.  Neither any announcement on Report Builder 4.0. Hence I would assume that it is Report Builder 3.0.

    Community - Please advice if this is incorrect.

    If you go into the blue and white ? in Report Builder for help, the title bar says, "Report Builder 3.0 Help". The naming change to only include the SQL version and not a Report Builder version definitely left a lot of confusion.

    I have used both versions quite a bit and can not find any differences at all.
