Inherited Report

This topic describes how to use the Report Wizard at design time within Visual Studio to create a report that inherits its layout from another report.

To create a copy of a report, run the Report Wizard, select Inherited Report and click Next.

ReportWizard-ChooseReportType-InheritedReport

On the next wizard page, do one of the following.

  • Select an ancestor report from the list of available reports and click Finish.

    report-wizard-inherited-select-current-project

  • Select an assembly (a DLL or an EXE file) that contains the ancestor report.

    report-wizard-inherited-select-ancestor-assembly

Editing of the created inherited report will be prohibited unless this is allowed by the Modifiers property setting of the ancestor report.
