An rdl file is just an XML file. You can open it with virtually any text or HTML editor. It will probably contain everything you need to see.

Come to think of it, you could probably also find everything you need in the report server database as well, but it will not be a nice tidy package like the rdl file.

One of the options for the Reporting Services Scripter is to create a solution file for reports already deployed on a SSRS server. Have a look at it here... http://www.sqldbatips.com/showarticle.asp?ID=62 It will download all of the selected reports into a nice tidy report solution so that you don't have to open/download each one separately.

It has a variety of uses, mostly I use it to manage deployment from Dev/QA and Prod.

The query and everything should be in the XML file.

If you want to pull the report into a solution so you can edit in VS. Open an existing Report Project, or create a new one. With the project open right click on the Reports folder >> Add >> Existing Item. Browse for your rdl file and viola you have the report in a solution

Load the rdl file into a solution and then get the sql statement from there.

Otherwise, parse the xml looking for your sql statement.
