Can we use Telerik Reporting to store and load the reports dyanamically?  Our client wants the design of the website to be designed generically to dispaly reports and then allow the reports to be added dynamically storing the report on the file system on the server or possibly store in the database (whatever way will work is fine with the client).  The client does not want to have to re-deploy the website everytime a report is changed or added.

Thank you!

Hello SL,

Unfortunately no such functionality is available in the current version. However this has been requested by other users as well and we would have it in mind for implementation in subsequent version of the product.

Sincerely yours,

I'm not clear on your exact objectives, but can share a process that we implemented that may be of value to you.

We have to produce daily PDF reports of each client (over 5000), uniquely named, and grouped in directories under their team ID. The data is being pulled from an AIX database to SQL Server, then through Telerik reports which are running as a console application on a server. Task scheduler kicks off the process daily and populates the network directory with a fresh set of reports.

We had to shut off the font embedding, and each PDF is about 22k in size now.

Maybe in your case this approach might work, if you have control of the web server itself. In our case, we do. The website only needs to be concerned with loading of file names from a directory. The reports generated, the timing, and everything else are controlled by the Windows process.
