Step 2: Add the Crystal Report file

You'll need the Invoice.rpt file created in Part 1 for this step.  We'll simply copy the file to the ReportingService folder using Windows Explorer and then add the report to the Web Service project.

1.    Open Windows Explorer and copy the Invoice.rpt file created in Part 1 to the ReportingService folder that was created in Step 1.

2.    Go back to Visual Studio.  Right click on the ReportingService project and select Add Existing Item… from the pop-up menu.  Navigate to the ReportingService folder and click on the Invoice.rpt file.  Click the Add button.

3.    If you are using the Invoice.rpt file that you created in Part 1 you shouldn't need to change anything.  If you are using the Invoice.rpt file in the sample code you'll need to change the database connection string to your AdventureWorks database by opening up the report in Visual Studio.  Right click on the Database Fields in the Field Explorer Window and select Set DataSource Location… from the pop-up menu.

Hello Vince,
I was wondering if you had issues with load times while downloading the web service everytime you open the browser again. It takes 15 seconds to run my report the first time then 2 seconds everytime thereafter. Thoughs?
