SQL Server 2008 RS Version Issue

I have sql server 2008 r2 loaded on my PC, but when I work on this current ssrs report (using sql server 2008 r2) that uses ROTATE270 I get below error:

Error      1      The WritingMode value 'Rotate270' is not supported in SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services. Set the WritingMode to either 'Horizontal' or 'Vertical' or change the ReportServerTargetVersion to a version that supports a WritingMode of 'Rotate270'.      C:\Workspaces\PECCS\Main\Reports\PECCS_Reports\Timeline.rdl      0      0

I did not write this report, just been told to make a change to it.

Exactly what version of SQL do I need ?  Or what am I missing ?

Yup. You can check the sql server version in http://reportserver/reportsfolder. there in the bottom you have the version of your ssrs installed shown.
Writing mode ROTATE 270 can be used only in Reporting Services 2008R2. You have to upgrade the ssrs version.

So, having Sql Server 2008 R2 does not mean you also have Reporting Services 2008R2 ?

You have to do a separate upgrade of Reporting Services to R2 ?
