NAV 2013 RDLC: Open Report Designer instead of Visual Studio

Hi everybody,

is there a way to decide to open Report Designer instead of VS? Without deinstalling VS?



That is only possible in NAV 2013 R2. Not in the previous versions.

In Dev Environment:

change Tools / Options / Use Report Builder to YES

updated while I was typing, Erik managed first [;)], and he is correct saying it’s possible only in latest version - 2013 R2

Ok, thanks to you both for your reply. Side question: the reason why I want to do this is because I need to create a read/write variable. From all I found online this is not possible with VS 2010 but with Report Designer. Does anybody know if, when I would open the report with report designer, create my var as read/write, the report would still work in VS2010? Because yesterday I created a report with RD, created a r/w var and then looked up the RDLC-Code for this var and copied that code to my original NAV-Report. That didn’t work, though: I crashed my Report doing this. Any suggestions?
