Lost rdl file?

leave a comment »

If you lose your rdl file you can recover it if your report manager is still working.   It’s not intuitively simple to find but..

Go to your Report manger (http://servername/reports )
Select the report and go to the properties tab
Click the edit link under ‘Report Definition’
Save it

Now, if you don’t have report manager up and working then you might be hosed.  From what I understand the reports are actually stored encrypted in SQL server.  With that said, there are tools that you can use to recover the files, given that you have the encryption key. ..like this “Reporting Services Scripter
