Save Reports to a Report Server (Report Builder)

In Report Builder, you can save a report definition to a report server (also known as publishing a report). When the report is saved to a report server, other users can view the report. Each time you run the published report, you will retrieve the most current data. To save a static copy of a rendered report, export the report to a different file format and save it or use the report history feature to save versions of rendered reports.

Note Note

The location of the saved report definition does not affect whether the report is processed on the server or processed locally when you preview the report.

To save a report to a report server

  1. From the Report Builder button, click Save. The Save As <Report Item> dialog box opens.

    Note Note

    If you are resaving a report, it is automatically resaved to its previous location. Use the Save As option to change location.

  2. Optionally, click Recent Sites and Servers to show a list of recently used report servers and SharePoint sites.

  3. Browse to the report server location where you want to save the report.

  4. In Name, type the name of the report.

  5. In Items of type, select the type of report item you are saving. The type for reports is Reports(*.rdl).

To save a report as a different name
