Create the Report Project

First, we will launch Reporting Services' Report Designer, found in Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003.

1.  Click Start.

2.  Navigate to the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 in the Programs group, as appropriate. The equivalent on my PC appears as shown in Illustration 16.

The New Project dialog appears. We note that Business Intelligence Projects appears in the Project Types tree, indicating an installation of Reporting Services (the folder was added by the installation of Reporting Services, as it established the Report Designer in Visual Studio .NET).

5.  Click Business Intelligence Projects in the Project Types list, if necessary.

6.  Click Report Project in the Templates list.

7.  Navigate to a location in which to place the Report Project files.

8.  Type the following into the Name box, leaving other settings at default:

MXAS017

The New Project dialog appears, with our addition, as shown in Illustration 18.

Our new project appears in the Solution Explorer (upper right corner of the Visual Studio .NET interface), as we see in Illustration 19.

We have now created a Report Project, and are ready to proceed with creating a Report File.
