How can I take an .RDL from Report Builder and move it to SSRS 2005? The 2005 SSRS is the production server which runs the report I need to modify, I had made the changes using Report Builder but the format (elements) are different If I try to upload the .rdl it will fail. Althought the .rdl is just text, it too much to type.

What version of Report Builder are you using? It sounds like you're using a newer version of Report Builder which is saving the .rdl in a different format than what SSRS 2005 is looking for.

Just a thought.

Yes I'm taking an 2008 .rdl and moving it to a 2005 platform.

I don't know of any way to "downgrade" a SSRS report from 2008 to 2005 -- the file formats are different as I understand it. I think you'd have to recreate the report from scratch using either VS 2005 or the Report Builder version with 2005 (was 2.0?)
