Getting the RDL files out of Sql Server Reporting Services (SSRS)

What happens if you lose the RDL source file for your SQL Reporting report?  Or more accurately, what if your coworkers never check them into source control?

Well, you can get them out of the web interface of SSRS.

To do this:

  1. Login into the /Reports of SSRS
  2. Navigate to the report you want
  3. Click the Properties tab
  4. Then under Report Definition, click “Edit”
  5. Save the RDL file to your local machine.
