Hi,

All the report files are situated at 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM\Reports\MSCRM' with a file extension .rdl.

You can open and edit these files using Visual Studio 2005, make your changes then upload them back to CRM.

You've got complete control over these.

Cheers,
MH

Thank you for your quick response. Is this applicable to custom reports that I have created and saved in CRM? I found the reports folder but my custom reports are not there. Where would my custom reports be by default if created within CRM? Are they customizable as the stock CRM reports? Thanks

Hi,

Yes your custom reports are totally customizable as well.

When you created your custom reports you must have saved the initial RDL file somewhere.  Just open that report, make your changes then upload back into CRM.

I have created several new reports in CRM and searched the entire drives for these reports and all *.rdl and cannot seem to find any report files other than the ones that are stock reports in CRM.

Installation is also limited to this one server so I have no reason to look for it anywhere else... any ideas? Can they be of a different extension type or encrypted or stored in SQL?

Hi,

With CRM 4.0 the reporst are uploaded into the database itself but there still should be a copy somewhere.

You can check in the local reportserver for a report that was the same time as you loaded your custom report, then open Reporting Services using the SQL Server Management Studio, find the report, right click and select edit.  This will allow you to save the report as an rdl file then edit from there.  After that you can upload back into CRM.
