Local and Server Reports

Calling Reports Through .NET from Reporting Server:

To Load a server Report in web page directly is not possible. By taking a ReportViewer control we can show the Report in web page.

The ReportViewer control is available in ToolBox under Data Controls Tab.

<rsweb:ReportViewer ID="ReportViewer1" runat="server" ProcessingMode="Remote">

<ServerReport ReportServerUrl="http://ServerName/ReportServer" ReportPath="/ReportsFolder/ReportName" />


The ProcessMode of ReportViewer Represents weather the Report is Server Report or Local Report.

To load Report from Reporting Server set the ReportViewer attribute ProcessingMode property to Remote as ProcessingMode="Remote"

To load Report from Local set the ReportViewer attribute ProcessingMode property to Local as ProcessingMode="Local"

Requesting a Server Report in C#:

ReportViewer1.ProcessingMode = Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ProcessingMode.Remote;

ReportViewer1.ServerReport.ReportServerUrl =new Uri("http://ServerName/ReportServer");

ReportViewer1.ServerReport.ReportPath = "/ReportsFolder/ReportName";

For Windows applications The processing mode is set as follows

ReportViewer1.ProcessingMode =Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms.ProcessingMode.Remote;
