public function CreateReport (
    Report : String, 
    Parent : String, 
    Overwrite : boolean, 
    Definition : byte[], 
    Properties : Property[]
) : Warning[]

Parameters

  • Report
    The name of the new report.
  • Parent
    The full path name of the parent folder to which to add the report.
  • Overwrite
    A Boolean expression that indicates whether an existing report with the same name in the location specified should be overwritten.
  • Definition
    The report definition to publish to the report server.
  • Properties
    An array of Property objects that contains the property names and values to set for the report.

Return Value

An array of Warning objects that describes any warnings that occurred when the report definition was validated.

Remarks

If errors occur, the report is not created.

Adding a report to the report server database modifies the ModifiedBy and ModifiedDate properties of the parent folder.

Example

To compile this code example, you must reference the Reporting Services WSDL and import certain namespaces. For more information, see Compiling and Running Code Examples. The following code example publishes a report in the form of a Report Definition Language (RDL) file to a report server database:

Imports System
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Web.Services.Protocols

Class Sample
   Public Shared Sub Main()
      Dim rs As New ReportingService2005()
      rs.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials

      Dim definition As [Byte]() = Nothing
      Dim warnings As Warning() = Nothing
      Dim name As String = "MyReport"

      Try
         Dim stream As FileStream = File.OpenRead("MyReport.rdl")
         definition = New [Byte](stream.Length) {}
         stream.Read(definition, 0, CInt(stream.Length))
         stream.Close()

      Catch e As IOException
         Console.WriteLine(e.Message)
      End Try

      Try
         warnings = rs.CreateReport(name, "/Samples", False, definition, Nothing)

         If Not (warnings Is Nothing) Then
            Dim warning As Warning
            For Each warning In  warnings
               Console.WriteLine(warning.Message)
            Next warning

         Else
            Console.WriteLine("Report: {0} created successfully with no warnings", name)
         End If

      Catch e As SoapException
         Console.WriteLine(e.Detail.InnerXml.ToString())
      End Try
