I am using SSRS 2000 with Development Studio 2003. When I deploy the reports, they show up on the web page as rContactsWFiltersandSortingandGrouping.rdl and the names are hard for readers to understand. It would be best if they read as "Contacts - With Sorting and Grouping". How do I do this?

Go to Report Manager:   http://YourReportServer/Reports

From here you can go to properties (Easier if you change to details view) and change the name and description.

Or you could simply change the file name in report designer which is what is being used when deployed. Select the report in the Solution Explorer and change the File Name property to Contacts - With Sorting and Grouping.rdl

Can you select which reports and files to deploy? In the project, there is a .CSS file and other reports/files that I may not want to deploy to the reporting web server.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

If you right click the report in the solution explorer you should see the option to deploy it.

Thanks.

It turns out the reports named with rContactsWFiltersandSortingandGrouping.rdl were already there and named "Contacts - With Sorting and Grouping". So, I have duplicate reports on the reporting web page. How do I remove these old reports? How do I remove the .css file from appearing on the page? I don't want to remove the .css file, but not make it show on the  page.

You can delete reports from the report server by using the Report Manager as detailed (http://YourServerName/Reports).

I have never hidden CSS, but you can hide Data Sources from the list by ticking "Hide in List View" in the properties of the item.  Go to the report manager and have a good look around, plenty of options in there.

You can do this before deployment as Igy mentoined in the BIDS.

Or again you can do this after deployment from the report server using that link
