Subreport function in Report Builder 2.0


  • Hi all,

    I am trying to create a subreport in report builder 2.0. When I select Properties and Select Browse to pick up a report it shows a dialog box "Recent Sites and Servers"

    I have nothing in there...

    I believe we can only specify reports on a server not a file system. Is there a way to specify a different server for me to connect to, is there a setting I can change..

  • Hi Milli,

    You're right that we only support subreports found on RS servers (or RS integrated SharePoint sites).  To connect to a server, you can one of 2 things:
    1) Set a default server in the RB2.0 Options dialog (and restart RB2.0)
    2) In the "Select Report" dialog, type the URL for the root folder of the server you want in the "Name" textbox and press enter (this will force a connection to that server).  For example, type "http://MySharePointServer/" or "http://MyRSServer/ReportServer/"

    I think what you want is option 2, unless you use the same server a large percentage of the time.  The two options are not mutually exclusive either: if you're connected to one server, you can switch to another using the second option in most of the open/save/browse dialogs.

    Hope that helps.
