Flexible Solutions, Inc. – GP Reports Viewer


To setup a Report Server connection:

  • 1.

    Ensure that you have a working SQL Server Reporting Services installation and that you can navigate to the Report Server URL in a web browser. This URL is generally specified as http://ServerName/ReportServer where ServerName refers to the machine name where SSRS is installed and ReportServer refers to the Report Server Virtual Directory.

  • 2.
