How do I allow an end user make modifications to a rdl that I created using Report Designer

P: n/a
Hi,

I have several reports ( .rdl) that I created using report designer, how can
I let the end user make modifications to the text in some of these reports.
As I am unable to use Report Builder to modify reports ( .rdl ) created with
Report designer, what are my options. is there a way I can embed the report
designer within my c# winform application. I have tried converting/creating
a report builder version but with no success..

Thanks in advance..

Hi there...if you are running SSRS 2005 I would make the report using
the report builder if at all possible then give the user rights to
change it. There probably are other ways of doing this but I think
this might be the easiest...

Also, depending on the text that needs to be changed, you could allow
certain text report parameters to be filled in by the user and use the
parameter results to set the text in the report.
