Jeez Louise, I can't believe the difficulty of this task!! I made changes to a report and deployed them to our report server. However, the changes are not in TFS. I overwrote my changes from TFS. Now I am banging my head against the wall trying to get the RDL out of report server.

I've looked here:
http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic965586-147-1.aspx
http://www.sqlteam.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=102320
http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/sqlserver/en-US/df191498-9b45-413e-bc1b-32944ac02701/how-to-download-reports-from-reportserver
http://sql-articles.com/articles/general/download-export-rdl-files-from-report-server/

When I visit Report Manager, my URL looks like this:
http://XX.XXX.XX.XX/ReportServer/CompanyReports

I have a list of report names. If I right-click the one I want, I can "save target as". The only problem is it is saving an HTML file, not the RDL file that I need.

Right-click on the report, then properties, opens up a dialog with no other options besides OK/Cancel.

Did Microsoft really make it impossible to retrieve a report from Report Server 2005? This is super frustrating.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for the speedy replies. The problem seems to be that I am not in Report Manager. I've just asked someone I work with how to get there.

I have a list of file names, but don't have any ability to download them. If I get to the Report Manager with the yellow background then hopefully it will work.

Thanks,

Good luck. Looking at it, yeah you were only in Report Server. You need to be in Report Manager to download. Or download from the database like in the link I provided.

Thanks again, SQLRNNR. I think the link you posted is very cool. Someday I will need to create an SSIS package that downloads all the reports.

Thanks Alex, for your link. This is what saved me.
