If Visual studio 2010 can open layout from object designer?

Hi All. I know vs2008 can design rdlc report from object designer, But now we upgrade navision to 2016 from 2009, And now I can not open rdlc report from object designer in navision 2016? there is no way to do it ?

thanks in advance!

You can. Go to the Report → Design → View → Layout. This will open visual studio to design rdlc report.
Make sure before doing this you choose in NAV Tools → Options → Use Report Builder = No.

Hi Harikiran , I know how to open vs to design the report, I have installed vs2010, But when I open layout, it saids “A supported version of visual studio could not be found”, if I lost some componets when I installing vs2010?

Hi Gary,

You cannot use Visual Studio 2010 with Dynamics NAV 2016. The requirements to edit report layouts in 2016 are:

  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 Professional, Premium, or Ultimate edition.
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Professional, Premium, or Ultimate edition.
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 Professional or Enterprise edition with SQL Server Data Tools installed.
  • SQL Server Report Builder 3.0 for Microsoft SQL Server 2014, Microsoft SQL Server 2012 SP1, or Microsoft SQL Server 2012.

And if you have installed NAV 2016 CU1 (or later), then you can also use the free Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition to edit your report layouts.

I see., thanks Erik.
