Did you try using SSRS SOAP API (VB.NET or C#)
here is an sample how to use properties from Shervin Shakibi's Blog but you will need get the datasets or get the report definiton and use XML to get your data like
DataSets /  Fields and  Query CommandText      nodes ...

 ReportingService2005.GetReportDefinition Method

using System;
using SoapAPI.ReportService2005;
class Module1
         public void Main()
                 ReportingService2005 rs = new ReportingService2005();
                 rs.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
                 rs.Url = "http://Localhost/reportserver/reportservice2005.asmx";
                 Property name = new Property();
                 name.Name = "Name";
                 Property description = new Property();
                 description.Name = "Description";
                 Property[] properties = new Property[2];
                 properties(0) = name;
                 properties(1) = description;
                 try {
                          Property[] returnProperties = rs.GetProperties("/AdventureWorks Sample Reports/Company Sales", properties);
                          Property p;
                          foreach ( p in returnProperties) {
                                   Console.WriteLine((p.Name + ": " + p.Value));
                 catch (Exception e) {
                 finally {
