Reportviewer control in VS.NET 2005
Do not know if this is beginner or not but asking here. I am trying to export some data on my webpage to Excel. I seen examples on using the HTTPResponse to do this but looking at other options as well. I don't need anything elaborate and trying to keep my code simple enough so the DBA here can understand it without calling me while I am on vacations and stuff. I have never tried this control before and decided to give it a try which is the reportviewer in VS.NET 2005. So far so good building a report is pretty much like using Reporting Services in SQL which I understand is what this is. Here is my issue. Seeing I have never used this control before, I don't know where to find to add this reference or any references for this control to work. Locally with the built in IIS in VS it works great. On my app server it throws an exception. My app server has no extra programs install except IIS and .NET 2.0 and 1.1. and it is a 2k3 server. The except refers to this library that I need help locating or registering.
Line 1: <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>
Line 3: <%@ Register Assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
Line 4: Namespace="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms" TagPrefix="rsweb" %>
The line in the exception that it is referring to is in red above. I can go with the HTTPReponse but looking at other options since my DBA knows SQL Reporting Services hehe.
