Convert RDLC Report to Word

Posted on by 640

Is there a quick & easy way to convert a Built-In RDLC Format report to Word? For instance report: 399 Remittance Advice - Journal - doesn't have a Word version, only RDLC. We have a requirement to use it with 'Use for Email Body' switched on in 'Report Selection' page, but when we do, we get the error below:-

Validation Results
Report 399 uses the RDLC which cannot be used as an email body.

Or do I have to clone and re-author the report in Word using the exported RDLC report as reference. Could be quite time consuming and knotty?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Unfortunately, as far as I know, there is no convenient way, you have to re-customize a new Word Layout.

    PS: You can add your idea to the BC Ideas below, and if there are enough votes, Microsoft will consider adding it to the standard feature.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks.

    I am afraid you have to re-author it in word.

    But it is not that time consuming that you might think at first.
