Importing Word Document as Template RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to use a Word or PDF document as a template for designing of SSRS report.

    Design and Document layout is better in Word, the canvas in BIDS is not design friendly.

    So, does anyone know if importing Word or PDF is allowed in BIDS?

    I don't know any tool to convert a Word/PDF into a BIDS report.

    Thanks for your reply. The design section of SSRS would be a whole lot better, if you could design your reports/forms much like you can in Acrobat. I design my layouts in Word, save as PDF. Open PDF with Acrobat and drag and drop form fields onto PDF. Done!

    This feature needs to be added to SSRS.
