Return Value

An ExecutionInfo object containing information for the report execution.

This method should be called prior to calling the Render method for a report.

The returned report execution will need to be processed before it is rendered. A new execution is created and the ExecutionInfo is returned with a new ExecutionID value.

Reports instantiated with the LoadReportDefinition method are temporary. They are not represented in the report server namespace, and are discarded when the server session expires.

Reports instantiated with the LoadReportDefinition method are not securable, and may not be shared with other users - the person who created the execution with LoadReportDefinition is the only user who may access them.

Subreports and data source references with relative paths are not supported using this method. However, absolute paths to catalog items can be used.

Please see Render for an example.

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
