Report Properties Dialog Box, References (Report Builder)

Select References on the Report Properties dialog box to add or remove references to custom or other external assemblies and custom class instances that are used by expressions in the report definition. Custom assemblies are not supported in local mode in Report Builder. To author reports that use custom assemblies, use Report Designer in SQL Server SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT). For more information, see Comparing Report Authoring Environments in the Reporting Services documentation in on msdn.microsoft.com.

Add or remove assemblies

Lists the assemblies that the report references. The assembly must be available on the computer on which the tool you are using to design the report is installed and on the report server. The name of the reference must match the contents of <CodeModule> tags in the Report Definition Language (.rdl) file exactly.

Add

Click to add an assembly. Click the ellipsis (…) button to open the Open dialog box and select the assemblies necessary to complete report processing and expression evaluation.

Remove

To remove an assembly reference from the list, select the assembly name and click the Remove button.

Add or remove classes
