Reporting Services Windows Folders

Unlike Crystal, all Reporting Services reports (RDLs) are run from their deployed, or "stored", location within the Report Server database. Nonetheless, copies of the RDL files for baseline are kept within the site's folder system in the iweb\reports\RSreports\Base Reports folder. There is also a Custom Reports folder for those reports. For anyone developing custom reports, it is recommended to place the RDL file in this folder and deploy it from there. There is also a samples folder that may be pointed to by the RSSampleReportFolder system option. Samples are covered in more detail in the next section.

The use of the "client", "external", and "internal" folders for the Crystal report files (RPTs) has not changed.
