Hi all
for several days I'm trying to restore the exact layout of a report,
especially in the export to Excel, after importing it in
BIDS 2008 from Visual Studio 2003, where it was originally created.
The point is that when it was in the 2003 version, the layout and export to
Excel corresponded exactly to what the users expected.
Now, however, after opening it in 2008 Business Intelligence (that deploy on
SQL Server 2008 R2), has all the layout changed, and also the resulting Excel file
is completely changed.
Does anyone know if is possible to deploy from VS2003 (original report) to
SQL Server 2008R2 directly, in order to keep the old layout?

Thank you

Luis

Yes, I've copied (Add Existing Item) old reports (from VS 2003) into Business Intelligence Development Studio 2008.
