what kind of report you trying to create here? in what environment (Windows, Web-based, etc) and in what format (HTML, in a Form, etc)?

you need to give us more details to attract expert's attention.

I have a asp.net front end with SQL back end web application that was built In vs 2008.  We want to expand it adding reports to it.  When I installed vs 2017, I need directions on where I can do it.  (I could not find it. Sorry)

Any ideas? In 2008, there is a "Reporting" selection if I want to create a new project. In 2017, I cannot find it.  thanks
have you tried to get the Report Viewer from NuGet Package Manager?

Not too sure if it's an option for VS installation.... Can you install the NuGet Package Manager from the Visual Studio Installer instead?

okay, I found the NuGet Package Manager and installed Report Viewer. But it does not show up in Toolbox, Do I need to add it?  thanks
My newly installed VS 2017 doesn't really work well in my Windows 10.

in VS 2010, you can select the Report View from Reporting tab.

I finally able to use my VS 2017 in my Windows 10.

I guess I selected an older version of Report Viewer!

To use the latest Report Viewer, in NuGet Package Manager, try typing: Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportViewerControl

You may proceed to install: Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportViewerControl.WebForms by Microsoft

After you have installed the component, go to your Toolbox, right click and select Choose Items:

Under .NET Framework Components, try Click on the Browse button.

And then select the DLL from your project package folders, such as:

yourProject\packages\Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportViewerControl.WebForms.140.340.80\lib\net40\Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms.dll

After that you can see the Report Viewer was added successfully in your VS 2017.

I really appreciate your help. I have added ReportView to the Toolbox. When I drag the control over, I can see the control displaying. thank you

On the top right corner, there is a small arrow to select the report. I know I need to create a report project (right?) , but when I try to add a new project(item), there is no report project (sorry, if I used the wrong term)

Also, Please let me know if you want me to create a new question regarding this.  thank you
