Good day, I need help.

I normally run a report via url and add the &rs:Format=PDF to open file directly in PDF format.

But i now need to automatically run the report onclick of an html button & save pdf to c:

Is this possible?

Hi,

Yes it is possible. Use webservice.

Hope the below url will help you.

You need to realise that you can't save a file to the C: drive from within a web browser without user intervention because of security issues.

You will *always* get the dialog box up asking what you want to do with the file, 'Open it' or 'Save it'.
Can you imagine the havoc that could be caused if this could be circumvented. w00t

You can either use the URL method you have been using, in which case you get the dialog to Save or Open the file, or use the Web Service method as previously mentioned. Although, if you use this method you will need to write a windows app to enable you to write to the users local disk. Using ASP.NET will only allow you to render the file on the server then serve it back to the user in the browser whereupon you will get the 'Open/Save' dialog again. Back to square one.

I did have some more ideas:
1. Write an ActiveX control. But if you thought the code example for the web service was complicated then I don't think this is the solution for you.
2. Using ASP.NET and the SSRS Web Service you could create a page that would render and save the report to a network share.

Hope you get your problem solved.

I have a CLR routine that mails reports on my blog here
http://sqlblogcasts.com/blogs/sqlandthelike/archive/2009/08/27/direct-emailing-of-ssrs-reports-via-sqlclr.aspx

It should be fairly simple to modify that.

What do you mean by "can't"?

- You don't have visual Studio?
- You get an error when you try?
- Or something else?

Please give details.
