SSRS Templates in VS 2005 & 2008

The process is about creating a new template report, just an empty one, including the header photo and some of the built in fields.


then saveing the .RDL file at
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies\ProjectItems\ReportProject\   
if you’re using VS 2005 
Or
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies\ProjectItems\ReportProject\     
if you’re using VS 2008

Using the template:


I usualy save 2 templates, I call them "ComapnyName_Template_Landscape"  and "ComapnyName_Template_Portrait"

Download my sample .RDL template.
