I used VS in the past plenty of times, but usually I use the VS that's the same year as the SQL/SSRS server. However, in my current case, I'm working in VS 2017 Pro and I have a SSRS 2012 server. I created a report in VS2017 and when I went to upload the RDL file to the report server, I get a message that it cant upload it because the definition is different.
Is there a plug in that I can install to make VS2017 backward compatible?
I'll keep doing my own research but wanted to post this as well.
