Yes. Log into the reporting services via Sql Server Managment Studio (SSMS). Right click on the report and export it to your desktop. Go to your dekptop, right click on the report and select copy.

Open your BIDS project and in the solution exporere window on the right go Ctrl + V to paste the report. Douple click the report and start editing.

When you open up SSMS, a small window titled "Connect to Server" shows up. In that window under "Server Type", choose "Reporting Services". There is a drop down that will enable you to choose from a list of services (see the screen shot below). Then under "Server Name" type the sql server name or IP address that you trying to connect to.

Click okay and if you the correct permission you will be able to log in.

Hope this helps.

So you cannot see Reporting Services as an option in the drop down?

Try opening the same report in Report Builder and see if you can save a copy of the report on your dektop. If you are able to save the report on your desktop then follow the steps above.
