I'm following this tutorial -
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn154770.aspx - to create a drill through report. First step is to create a new website using the "ASP.NET Reports Web Site" template. However, I do not see this template under C#. I'm using VS 2017 and sql server
2016. Any advice? Can I use another template? Can I download the template from somewhere? Thanks! - Rich

ASP.NET Reports Web Site
Use this project template to create an ASP.NET website that contains a report (.rdlc file), a default ASP.NET Web Forms page (.aspx file) that contains a ReportViewer control, and a Web.config file.
For now I recommend using ASP.NET Reports Web Site for VS2015 if you need to create.

That is the template that I want to use. However, my question is how to get the template? It is not available in VS 2017. Are you saying that I need to install and use VS 2015 to get Reports Web Site project template? Or can I download the template from
somewhere on the web in order to use with VS2017? And if so, any links?

I'm guessing by now you found an answer but since I had the same question and didn't see a link, I'm sharing it here for anyone else who has the same question. I found that for VS 2017, there is a downloadable extension which adds the ASP.NET Reports Web
Site for both C# and VB. To install the extension, VS must be closed first. Here is the link to the download page:
