Error when opening Design SSRS Report

Running 10.1.400.19 and am getitng this error when trying to create an report:

Server Error in ‘/Reports’ Application.
The resource cannot be found.

Try to open Report Builder from your workstation first and let’s see if it works.

I can open Report Builder from my work station, as I have it downloaded to my computer.

And you still run into the problem? How are you creating your report?

Yes, when i am in BAQ Designer and I go tto Actions–>Design SSRS it give me the error I posted. AS of now, I am not creating anything really. Had a bad report issue about amonth ago that @aidacra helped with and since then I ahve not been able to create an SSRS. So something is off.

Hi William,

I am trying to replicate the issue, but I don’t see this Design SSRS menu (I’ve double-checked into 10.2.200, same thing).

Me neither… I think is the latest one? Hard to keep track when you are a SaaS customer haha

@Alexandre_Pothier and @Mario.Cortes I am still on the old 10.1.400.19. I have 10.2.200 in my test and it is not there. I was told the fix could be in that something is corrupt in the SQL server for SSRS and a patch would fix the issue. So i will be trying that soon.

Did you ever find the Design SSRS function in 10.2? I am doing upgrade testing and I can’t find this either now.

Are you trying to created a BAQ Report?

Yes. I have a BAQ I want to make a report out of. The BAQ Report Desinger doesn’t ahve the Design SSRS report under actions.

I could be doing it old-school, back how I learned to do it when BAQ Reports were “new” and only supported Crystal. (insert old-man joke here) My process is I enter the into into the Detail tab of BAQ Report Designer then Actions - Test Report Form and do a print preview. This makes a blank report then previews it on screen. Then I use my browser to connect to the SSRS Server and drill down into the Custom Reports folder and edit the report.

Have you tried “Download SSRS Report”? I haven’t but could be faster than my above way.

So, once I create it in the BAQ reports, and test report, it will be in the Custom Reports folder, correct?

FWIW - I never had luck setting those options / parameters in the BAQ Report window.

I would (and still do) just copy the files and launch the programs I need, all manually.

Works for me, I checked the help file and there is a walk-through search “Design a BAQ Report Layout in SQL Server Report Builder”

@ckrusen, I just use the Detail tab I’ve never had to use the filters or sorts tabs as that’s done in the BAQ or report. Our BAQReports are typically for auto-email reports ran overnight, so no need for the features of those tabs.

Well, once i can get Help to deploy, I will look that up! Right now, its being a pain!

I was referring to Designer’s options, not the specific report’s options.

I.E. these -

So I don’t use any of these


Using “Design SSRS Report” yields:


And mine looks like this and I have no “Design SSRS Report”

Ah, understood and I’ve not used them either. We’re on 10.2 and don’t even have “Design SSRS Report” option, I believe it’s replaced with “Download SSRS Report” there is also a 'Upload SSRS Report" as that is what is place on the menu.

If the Download/Upload will also get the report’s sub-reports that’d be so much easier than using the one-at-a-time browser method.

Depends what your Compnay Maint is setup as. Ours is both CR and SSRS


FWIW we’re on 10.1.400.23
