Create the Report Project

To begin, 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 depicted in Illustration 4.

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 tree, if necessary.

6.  Click Report Project in the Templates list.

7.  Navigate to a location in which to place the Report Project files. (I suggest using the same location as that containing the sample copies we created earlier.)

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

RS015

The New Project dialog appears, with our addition, as depicted in Illustration 6.

9.  Click OK.

Our new project appears in the Solution Explorer (upper right corner of the Visual Studio .NET interface), as we see in Illustration 7.

We have now created a Report Project, and are ready to proceed with establishing connectivity with a data source, and then opening the new clone Report File.
