Wizard to Duplicate SSRS Reports and Artifacts [AX 2012]

As reports have moved to SSRS in AX 2012, developers will notice that there is no option to duplicate SSRS reports and carry out with our customizations to existing in reports. In AX 2009, this was simple as we could just right click and select duplicate. Rename the report and then carry on with our changes.

AX 2012 is different. But developers need not worry. My friend Sreenath Reddy has developed a helpful wizard to duplicate an SSRS report along with some of its artifacts like CSharp business logic project, Data Provider class, Data Contract class and the report itself.

  1. Hi to all,
    I developed one SSRS Report with Auto Design Format.
    I go to File –> Print –> Print & Print preview options are enabled but the Page Setup & Printer Setup
    are disabled.
    How to enable those Two Options. When it is enabled.

    Please help to solve the issues.

  2. I think this tool is very interesting to allow duplicate reports from the AX development area.
    Altought It is very easy to duplicate a SSRS report in AX 2012 from VS.

    You can do it from the Aplication Explorer of Visual Studio. Simply locate the report to duplicate and do right-click –> Duplicate.

    After add the report to the AOT and you’ll see the new report in AX AOT.

    Hope this helps.
