SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services: copying the .RDL from your server (via: SQL Server Forums – Copy .rdl from ReportServer)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/06/12

With old installations like Reporting Services 2000, you will often see that a few the reports on the server don’t match the ones in your version control system.

That’s why you sometimes want to download the .RDL files.

User nsaini shows on the SQLTeam forum:

It is easy …..

  1. Go to Report on Report Manager,
  2. Click properties of report,
  3. under the report definition you will see Edit and Update link…
  4. if you click on Edit you can open or Save the RDL files.

Tara Kizer shows how you get into the report manager: through this URL http://yourserver/reports

Easy :)

There are similar steps for SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008.

If you have to do many of them, you can use Reporting Services Scripter to do it.

Even easier :)
