Hi there

I am making a call to reporting services through the report viewer.  I need to be able to authenticate a username and password to view the reports.

How would I go about authenticating a username and password?  I have tried messing about with report server credentials but can't seem to work it out.

Please note I am not using the web service SOAP calls, I am using the standard report viewer control in VB.net 2005.

many thanks in advance

there is a SetDatabaseLogon method of the ReportDocument, where you can pass username, password, server and database to the Report. try using that
