SQL Server Reporting service for a standalone desktop application
Hi, We are developing an C# desktop application which needs to generate the PDF report pages. The pages uses the data entered on the screen and also has some static text and pictures. Eventhough the application connects to the central database for storing the data, working offline that is without connecting to the server is one of the need. We have tried and tested that the Crystal reports basic 2008 which comes along with Visual Studio 2008 fulfils this requirement. However wondering if SSRS can be used instead of Crystal. Thanks in advance, Vinayak
