I am wondering if the following is possible:

A.  Create reports using the standalone designer
B.  Save reports directly into location on the web server
C.  Load these reports within a ReportViewer on a website created with Visual Studio - without having to put the reports into a class library - but instead pointing directly to the location of the reports located on the same server.

If this is possible... and if so, are there any telerik demos that show how this is done?

Thank you.

Hello Samantha,

Yes what you want to accomplish is possible. We introduced the Report Sources exactly because reports can be stored in different locations and in different formats and that is why there should be a uniform way to access them. In your case you can directly use UriReportSource in order to display a .trdx report inside a report viewer.
