Greetings,

Is there anyway to create EXTERNAL reports without having to compile a project?

We currenly use CR which uses a file with .rpt extension and we have the capability to create reports then place then in a reports folder. The page access the list which the users can run without having to recompile the project and have 60 users logout of the application every time we add a report.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Karim,

I am afraid currently there is no way out of the box to accomplish this. The reports that are generated from the report designer are just regular .NET classes, so if you add new reports to your project there is no other way but to recompile and redeploy your assemblies. Of course nothing stops you to implement your own method for constructing reports dynamically out of XML files.

If you have more questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to ask.

All the best,
Ivan
