  • The Report Viewer web part must be deployed to your SharePoint farm. For information on how to deploy the Report Viewer web part solution project, see Deploy the Report Viewer web part on a SharePoint site.

  • To add a web part to a web page, you must have the Add and Customize Pages permission at the site level. If you are using default security settings, this permission is granted to members of the Owners group who have the Full Control level of permission.

Add web part

  1. In your SharePoint site, select the gear icon in the upper left and select Add a page.

    Add a page to a sharepoint site from the gear icon.

  2. Give your page a name and select Create.

  3. Within the page designer, select the Insert tab in the ribbon. Then select web part within the Parts section.

    Insert a web part from the office ribbon.

  4. Under Categories, select **SQL Server Reporting Services (Native mode). Under Parts, select Report Viewer. Then select Add.

    You may initially see an error. The error is because the default report server URL is set to https://localhost and may not be available at that location.

Configure the Report Viewer web part

To configure the web part to point to your specific report, do the following steps.

  1. When editing the SharePoint page, select the down arrow in the upper right of the web part and select Edit web part.

    Edit web page from web part drop down.

  2. Enter the Report Server URL for the report server hosting your report. The URL should look similar to https://myrsserver/reportserver.

  3. Enter the path and name of the report you want to display within the web part. It will look similar to /AdventureWorks Sample Reports/Company Sales. In this example, the report Company Sales is in a folder called AdventureWorks Sample Reports.

  4. If your report requires parameters, after you have supplied the report server URL and the name of the report, select Load Parameters within the Parameters section.

  5. Select Ok to save your changes to the web part configuration.
