I'd like to add a report to my VWD2010 Express client/server web application that uses sql server as its' backend database processor. I'm guessing I'd use the 'reportviewer' control however I don't see any signs of report capabilities (apart from simple
listing) in either installed or online templates nor on my toolbox. Is this unavailable to the Express version or is there a way to install it? Thanks in advance!
To follow up, I downloaded Microsoft Report Viewer 2010 Redistributable Package, installed it, then with my project and test report page open, right-clicked on the 'data' tab in toolbox and under 'choose items' and the '.net framework components' tab chose
'Browse' and navigated to '\winnt\assembly\GAC_MSIL\Microsoft.ReportViewer.Webforms\10.0.0.0__b03f5f7f11d50a3a\' and opened Microsoft.ReportViewer.Webforms.dll. It added 'ReportViewer' to my toolbox, however, dragging it to my work page produced 'Error Creating
Control' ...'Failed to create designer Microsoft.Reporting.Webforms.ReportViewer', etc... Any clues anyone?
Thx in adv,

Thanks...lots of interesting information there (ie, getreportviewer.com). So I downloaded and installed reportviewer.exe and was unable to add it to my toolbox, or for that matter, see any trace that it was installed [like when i right-clicked toolbox],
except that it seemed to complete successfully. I heard that there may be another web developer version i can install...do you have that url? i'm using ms visual web developer 2010 express. thanku

As our moderator mentioned above, you could get ReportViewer control from
www.gotreportviewer.com, and then add references then right click on the toolbox and choose items.
At the same time you can also use ReportViewer2008 in VWD2010E, you could refer the discussion about how to use ReportViewer control in VWD, I think it will give some tips for you.
VWD 2010 Express
with ReportViewer control
Hope it helpful to you,

Thanks Angie. Please excuse the delay....had to rebuild my server...back up now and I'll be sure to try your suggestions. I know 2010 didn't work so I'll try '08.

Hello Angie. Saw thread you mentioned earlier at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/Vsexpressvcs/thread/60c328ec-e34c-4937-be3b-e6fc41d35711 Tried the steps outlined to get the Reportviewer Add on to VWD2010. This is what happened.
"Installed the ReportViewer 2010 on my computer and copied the microsoft.reportviewer.common.dll and microsoft.reportviewer.winform.dll from the assembly directory (C:/windows/assembly...") to another directory. You need to do this via the command line,
the Windows Explorer does not allow you to copy the dlls."
Command line reports an inability to find the file despite the fact it is clearly visible along with ReportViewer 8.0 and 9.0 in the C:\Windows\assembly folder.
"The system cannot find the file specified."
"You can still use ReportViewer2008 in VWD2010E if you don't need the export to Word capability."
This is true. When adding the Rerport Viewer as a reference, was only able to see the Reportviewer 9.0 dll. Could not see either 8.0 or 10.0, both of which are installed on the machine.
So what am I losing by using an obsolete tool? I told my boss he would be able to see SSRS reports from a web app. Is this still the case?
Does anyone know why the "paste from word" capability no longer works? It is an unnecessary pain to have to open the html window each time I want to do a simple paste.
