I know this is a wierd request. But there are some reports written for 2012 that I would like to use on a 2008 server. I think that I can use xslt to convert the 2012 reports to the 2008 format, or it might not be that difficult to just build
the report by hand, but before I start this, I wanted to see if anyone has heard of a tool that will do this?

Because of the backward compatibility of SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), we can run report that created in low version of SSRS in the higher version of SSRS. However, we cannot run the reports that created in high version in lower version of SSRS directly
before we convert it. In your scenario, you are looking for a tool that can convert reports form high version to lower version automatically, I am afraid there is not such a tool in Reporting Services currently.
Thank you for your understanding.
