This is so frustrating. 

I've spend hours designing a report using your software. 

I have all the colunns lined up, the SQL query done, and the viewer installed on a web page.

I need to make 10 other reports just link this, only with slightly different queries from the same database and/or data source.

How can I do this quickly? I do not want to have to design each report from scratch using the designer because they are all on separate pages on the same web site and need to look identical---and it would be way too cumbersome to try and match pixel for pixel each new designed report from the previous.  There is no copy report or import report style, etc.

There must be a simple way to do this.  I'm under a tight deadline.

Chris

Hello Christopher,
 
You may find this forum thread helpful in your case. It describes the preferred way of making reports which have a common base functionality and layout. You can also copy/paste the report files. However, you have to change the class names inside them as well.

Thanks for your response.

I don't understand that thread you reference.  We are under a very tight deadline.   I would prefer to quickly copy/pasted rather than research the optimal method right now.

How can I copy/paste the files, i.e., what specific files need to be copied to create a duplicate report?  Where in those files do the names need to be changed?

Hello Christopher Lee,

This task is pretty easy. I have attached a .zip archive with some screenshots which will show how you can create a dublicate of an existing report. I hope they will be helpful.

2 years later again and its still useful.

Except for one more step.
The first line in the Designer generated code needs load the NewReport resource.

System.ComponentModel.ComponentResourceManager resources = new System.ComponentModel.ComponentResourceManager(typeof(NewReport));
