A solution contains one or more projects. You will find report projects that have been added to the AOT under the Visual Studio Projects node and then expand the Dynamics AX Model Projects node. To add report projects to the AOT, in the Solution Explorer, right-click the reporting project and then click Add [project name] to AOT. For information about the other projects supported in Microsoft Dynamics AX, see Visual Studio Integration and How to: Add a Visual Studio Project to Microsoft Dynamics AX Version Control.

There are two ways to add a reporting project to a solution. You can add a new reporting project to a solution or you can add an existing reporting project from another solution. The following procedures explain how to add a reporting project to a solution in Microsoft Visual Studio.
