If I open up SSRS and edit a report through the Report Builder, any changes I make are not reflected when the report is exported as part of a solution. The changes do show up when I run the report.
Simple way to reproduce:
Create a new report in CRM using the report wizard, choose any entity.
Add a single column, for any field.
Save and publish the report to the organization.
Find the report on the SSRS page and select "Edit in Report Builder".
Change anything about the report, for example the column heading, and save. You will notice that running the report in CRM shows the changes.
Publish all customizations just to make sure.
Create a new solution, add the report to it, and export the solution. The exported report does not contain the changes. You can see this by either importing the solution, or unzipping the solution and editing the report itself directly in BIDS or Notepad.
Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong? Editing the report in the report wizard, or by using BIDS, does not have this problem.
I think the problem is that you are editing the report directly in SSRS when you should be opening the report record in CRM and using Actions-> 'Download Report' - then editing the rdl in Report Builder before uploading it again.
I wasn't aware that editing directly through SSRS wasn't supported. I'm surprised though that the report does work fine in CRM, and any changes I make are reflected. The problem only appears when you try to export. Which raises the question of where and how does CRM keep two different copies of the report - the one that runs and the one that exports.
Yes, there are two copies - one in CRM and one in SSRS because SSRS is simply the delivery mechanism that is pushed to when the report is added to CRM. The master is always in CRM and the SSRS one should never be edited directly.
Ah, good to know. Thanks.
