Linking to Reports in Document Library from .net web application
I have a document library that contains some SQL Reports. I have crearted a .net web application and I have a page that has links to the reports. I got the following error message: Reporting Services does not support anonymous user from a SharePoint site. To view Reporting Services reports, choose a SharePoint site that does not have Anonymous access enabled or sign in on an anonymous site. So, I turned on Anonymous access for the site, and gave the document library view for anonymous access. Now I can access the applications without an error message, but others are still getting this error message when they try to access from the link. Does anyone know why this would happen? Thanks.

As the error message states: "Reporting Services does not support anonymous user from a SharePoint site..." Therefor, enabling anonymous access will get you to the SharePoint site, but you won't be able to use the reports in the library. Instead, what is needed is for your .NET application to use impersonation to login to the site and use the reports. Start here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306158 I trust that answers your question... Thanks C http://www.cjvandyk.com/blog
