Namespace:   ReportService2005

public void SetExecutionOptions(
	string Report,
	ExecutionSettingEnum ExecutionSetting,
	ScheduleDefinitionOrReference Item


Type: System.String

The full path name of the report.

Type: ReportService2005.ExecutionSettingEnum

One of the ExecutionSettingEnum values that describe when the report executes. The value can be either Live or Snapshot.

Type: ReportService2005.ScheduleDefinitionOrReference

The schedule definition or shared schedule (ScheduleDefinitionOrReference object) that the report server uses to execute a report on a schedule.

The Item parameter is valid only if the value of the ExecutionSetting parameter is Snapshot. Set the value of Item to null (Nothing in Visual Basic) if ExecutionSetting is set to Live. If you are using a shared schedule, set the value of Item to a ScheduleReference object that references an existing shared schedule. If you are defining a unique schedule, set the value of Item to the ScheduleDefinition object that defines a unique schedule. If the execution options for a report are based on a shared schedule and that shared schedule is deleted, the schedule is then associated with the individual report.

If you change the value of ExecutionSetting from Live to Snapshot, the report is removed from the cache.

To compile the following code example, you must reference the Reporting Services WSDL and import certain namespaces. For more information, see Compiling and Running Code Examples. The following code example uses the SetExecutionOptions method to set the options for the Company Sales report to run as a snapshot on a schedule:

using System;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols;

class Sample
   public static void Main()
      ReportingService2005 rs = new ReportingService2005();
      rs.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;

      ScheduleDefinition definition = new ScheduleDefinition();

      // Create the schedule definition.
      definition.StartDateTime = new DateTime( 2003, 2, 22, 10, 15, 0 );
      MinuteRecurrence recurrence = new MinuteRecurrence();
      recurrence.MinutesInterval = 60;
      definition.Item = recurrence;

      // Apply execution settings
         rs.SetExecutionOptions("/SampleReports/Company Sales", ExecutionSettingEnum.Snapshot, definition);
