1) I have a SSRS report that I developed. It is sitting on my development machine in the Visual Studio project solution. It has not been published, but it does produce a report when I preview it.
2) I have an ASP.NET application that is attempting to run the report (see item 1 above).
Most hits I get on the internet show only a partial path (ie "\folder\reportname"). I assume that this partial path is going to be concatenated with a prefix in order to have the complete path to the report. I don't know what the prefix is so I cannot correctly
fill in the ReportPath.
Question 1: Should I be able to run my asp application and reference a report that has not been published?
Question 2: Can you help me understand how ReportPath is used based on my assumption that it is concatenated to a prefix value to arrive at a fully qualified path?

To point a reportviewer (I am assuming that you are using this) to a server report, you need to set the ReportServerURL property to point to the SSRS server you are using.
This is what they should look like:
The report will therefore need to be published to the server if you wish to preview it in your application.
Hope that helps.
