Praveen,I have a RDCE code sample in the last chapter of my book which you can download from the book page. The book also explains how RDCE works. Do you have any specific questions?Home page and blog:

Teo, Thanks for the reply. I'm creating SSRS 2008 reports for my web application.These reports are accessed through the Web application. Basically these reports are culture specific and also the appearence of these reports should be different for different groups of users. I have achieved the culture specific thing(multi- lingual) through xml datasources.Now i want to implement the entire functionality through RDCE based on some information that i could collect from the MSDN library.

That's exactly the scenario RDCE is designed to handle. However, bear in mind that you must configure each report for RDCE and there is no management UI for this.Home page and blog:

Teo,i finally had a look into the code sample. i have few questions with regard to this.1.I am able to run the project in VS 2008. now what do i need to do to deploy the report on to the report server(which is on a different computer) and make it run as a multi-lingual report. can you tell me the steps so that i can have a clear idea.2. there's a batch file and report server policy configuration files. What is the purpose of these files?3. you've told earlier that one must configure each report for RDCE, does it mean if i have two separate reports A and B, do i need to code separately for A and B to achieve multi-lingual functionality.If yes , then, is this a limitation...?Thanks
