Hi, seems to be a simple question, but i searched through the ReportViewer class and did not find such Export() method or something like that. I am using VS2005, using the ReportViewer to display the .rdlc report.

Thanks.

Hi pckben,

You need to use the ExportToDisk method of the ReportDocument object

Cheers!

Hi emoreau, thanks for your reply!

I think the problem is my project missing some references. But I can only found in my .NET reference list this two:
Microsoft.ReportViewer.Common
Microsoft.ReportViewer.WinForms (and the WebForm one)

Then I used Object Browser to search through it and could not find anything to use. Event your ExportToDisk and ReportDocument. Where did you find those?

I tried download and installed the ReportViewer package from Microsoft but seems it doesnt help.

(please take note i am using the rdlc with the ReportViewer, not the CrystalReportViewer one)

Anyone could show me the problem here please?

pckben.

The ReportDocument is part of CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine

oh so you are mentioning the CrystalReportViewer with the .rpt report arent you?

The problem is that, from the ReportViewer object (not the CrystalReportViewer one), i could only use reportviewerObject.LocalReport to link to the report object, but then it doesnt provide me any export method!

I am using the version of Crystal Reports that comes with VS 2005. The ReportDocument object is not part of the viewer.

Looks lilke you have added the new viewer for Microsoft's new report format, instead of the Crystal viewer. Here's some very detailed tutorial for crystal in .net 2005 http://www.businessobjects.com/global/pdf/dev_zone/VS2005_Walkthroughs.pdf
