Include Report Builder in application

Is it possible to compile report builder into a Forms based application? If
that is not possible is there a way of including it with the install so its
at least installed at the same time the application is. I would prefer not
to use the OneClick install from the Report Services due to the many
problems.

No sure about that, but a workaround would be to just use a form and
ReportViewer control. Then put textbox controls on the form (or other) to
do your filters, etc. Then just update the binding DataSource as needed
when the input changes. You can actually do more with it, then with Report
Builder. Just a thought.

Thanks for the response. I have a feeling recreating the report build with
preview and editing with be a major undertaking.
