Hello People! Here I am Again. This is a simple demo on how to use SQL Server Reporting (Microsoft Report Viewer). Hope it can help you.

This is only my reporting tool ever, i never use CR(Crystal Reports), I love Microsoft, I love RDLC :)

SQL Server Reporting Services provides a full range of ready-to-use tools and services to help you create, deploy, and manage reports for your organization, as well as programming features that enable you to extend and customize your reporting functionality.

Reporting Services is a server-based reporting platform that provides comprehensive reporting functionality for a variety of data sources. Reporting Services includes a complete set of tools for you to create, manage, and deliver reports, and APIs that enable developers to integrate or extend data and report processing in custom applications. Reporting Services tools work within the Microsoft Visual Studio environment and are fully integrated with SQL Server tools and components.

With Reporting Services, you can create interactive, tabular, graphical, or free-form reports from relational, multidimensional, or XML-based data sources. You can publish reports, schedule report processing, or access reports on-demand. Reporting Services also enables you to create ad hoc reports based on predefined models, and to interactively explore data within the model. You can select from a variety of viewing formats, export reports to other applications, and subscribe to published reports. The reports that you create can be viewed over a Web-based connection or as part of a Microsoft Windows application or SharePoint site. Reporting Services provides the key to your business data.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.


nice report viewer , i need it in my program

Sir how about specific listview.selecteditem namn po.. ung isang data na ung naclick ung lalabas sa report viewer?? :) thnx for response

Magcreate ka po ng dummy datatable then create a search button for specific record/item s listview then i-save sa dummy datatable tapos yun dummy table na yun ang gamitin mo for report.
*Note: make sure na every time na mgpprint ka dapat maiclear muna mga laman ng dummy table para hindi maisama sa report yung previous data na nasave sa dummy.

Hello just want to know how to make a report viewer vs 2010.... because im trying to filter multiple table for a report....

It is also possible to filter reports? And I don't have microsoft.winforms.reporting in my toolbox.

Hello Cedrick.

Did you use VS Studio Express on this one or Pro?

I don't have a report viewer control on my Toolbars although i already did an add reference for report viewer.

By the way what are my options in order for me to create or at least access reports from my VS 2010 express (to an rdl report for example)?

How could i make a rdlc report by the way? i have a report designer na part ng sql express ko.

Thanks for any reply.

I want to try this one :)

Does the report viewer can show specific file??examples you want to show the list of names who logged in that specific date?
