I have written a C# Web Application and i am using reporting services for the reports but when I access the reports from the web application, it throws the following exception.

System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: The operation you are attempting on item '/TestReport' is not applicable to this item type.

Microsoft.ReportingServices.Diagnostics.Utilities.RSException: The operation you are attempting on item '/TestReport' is not applicable to this item type.

Microsoft.ReportingServices.Diagnostics.Utilities.WrongItemTypeException: The operation you are attempting on item '/TestReport' is not applicable to this item type. at Microsoft.ReportingServices.Library.RSService.EnsureItemType(ItemType actualType, ItemType expectedType1, ItemType expectedType2, String path) .........................................

I made sure Reporting Services are running, tried the following to make sure Reporting Services work.

Your help will be highly appreciated,

    As it seems, you're using server reports. In theory, it should be quite smoth and easy to do this. Try following this guide and see if you still have any problems:

    1. Create a very simple report on the report server - preferrable even without data access.

    2. Make sure that you can run your report from the web-browser.

    3. Create a new web-application and rop a report viewer control on it.

    4. Click a smart tag (a little triangle at the top-right corner of the viewer) and select <Server Report> from Choose Report

    5. Specify the Report Server URL of your report, e.g.:

    6. Specify the report path:
    * Note the slash (/) in front and no extension

    That's it - your report should be running fine.
    Good luck,
