     Is there any way to use Byte array (which I convert from PDF) as an instanceReportSource? 

     Here is my scenario, I need to generate TWO report, say Report A and Report B. Report A is a subset of report B. Report A is generated first (at the beginning of the business cycle), then saved as byte array (in the database). then at the end of the business cycle, I need to generate Report B, which half top of it is exactly a copy of Report A. How can i achieve this using the byte array off Report A i already have?


    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Rafa,

    ReportViewer controls allow you to display Telerik.Reporting.Report objects (also serialized in XML). Displaying and merging of already rendered PDF files is out of the scope of the reporting engine.
    Instead please consider combining reports by using a layout as ReportBook or Master-Detail Report. This will allow you to export the content in a single document.

    If you are working with already existing PDf files, consider Telerik UI for AJAX PdfProcessing libraries and ClientExportManager.

    I hope the provided information helps you.
