Hi all

We want to put a custom template together to save a lot of time and keep our reports looking uniform.

I've created the template and saved it on my local drive but I can't see how to get it to appear on the menu when using Report Builder .
Does it need to go onto the server itself (and, if so, where?)?

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

It works differently with Report Builder than it does if using SSDT or BIDS. You kind of have to kluge it if using Report Builder by just creating a template, publishing that and then using that template to create a new report and doing a save as for the new report.
