Upload File Page (Report Manager)
Use the Upload File page to copy a file from the file system into the report server database. Uploaded files are represented as items in the report server folder hierarchy.
Use the Upload File page to copy a file from the file system into the report server database. Uploaded files are represented as items in the report server folder hierarchy. Uploaded .rdl files are published to a report server as reports. Uploaded .smdl files are published as report models if they contain data source view information. If they are missing a data source view reference, an error occurs during the upload. Data source view information might be missing if you upload a .smdl file from a Visual Studio report model project. In report model projects, data source view information is stored in a separate file rather than in the .smdl file itself. Model files that do contain data source view information are those that have been previously published to a report server and then saved from the server to a file on the file system. If you open the General Properties page of a model and click Edit to open the model, you can save it to a file and then upload it as a new model on the report server. The .smdl file that you subsequently upload will have all of information that is necessary for model publication. All other file types are stored as resources. The folder from which you initiate the upload operation is the folder that will contain the uploaded file. After the upload is complete, you can move the item to a different location.
|Report Models are not supported in SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services. For more information about feature availability, see Reporting Services in SQL Server 2005 Express Edition with Advanced Services.|
