This topic describes how to add an existing report to a reporting project. The task to add an existing report to a reporting project is performed in Visual Studio. You use Application Explorer and Model Editor tools to complete the task.
To Add an Existing Report
In Visual Studio, with a project open, on the View menu, select Application Explorer. The Application Explorer opens. Application Explorer lets you view items and perform tasks in the Application Object Tree (AOT) in Microsoft Dynamics AX.
In Application Explorer, expand the SSRS Reports > Reports node. Find the report that you want to add to the project.
Right-click the report and select Add to Project. The report is added to the current project.
You may need to open the report for edit at the Visual Studio project level. The project solution will contain any necessary dependencies for the report to build. For example, report drill-throughs require both the source and target report to be loaded in the solution to build successfully. For information on the reports that a reporting project contains, see List of Reporting Projects.
