I have to design reports that need to abide by the designing standards of the company.

Logo and Company Details in Page Header
Date/Time and Page Number in Page Footer
Company Colors as Color Scheme for Grouping Tables

How can one create new reports and use a design template automatically creates the report with the above mentions settings.

I have tried the editing the CSS already ... but doesn't support using images

Hi,

This is not very complicated however I am not sure you can create a template because both header and footer in SSRS comes with base restrictions. So spend time to create one make sure you get the result you wanted and use that as a sample for future versions. You need to make sure your images are either GIF or JPEG and file size is small. So I think the first thing to do is read up on the header and footer restrictions.

Kind regards,
Gift Peddie

Hi, roelofsleroux.
Maybe you can try RAQ Report. As I know, developers can save designed report style in the style list with it. Then, when meet report with same condition, users can select the desired style directly.

Here is a discussion about creating templates - http://blogs.msdn.com/bimusings/archive/2005/12/06/500462.aspx

The main key seems to be to put the starting report template in the right folder for Visual Studio to see it.

IMO, templates were somewhat of an afterthought in SSRS; however, you can also use Custom Assemblies and Code Modules:

We have integrated SSRS into hosted applications and I used the above to setup style elements based on client.

The problem with full trust assembly is the you cannot run the application in all places.

I just dropped my assembly in my C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.x\Reporting Services\ReportServer\bin folder on the Report Server and have never had a permissions issue.

That means your what is in your assembly is qualified for medium trust.
