In Visual Studio, I have successfully created my first report and linked it to the database and everything seems to be fine. The tutorial I was watching (by the way, if it OK I would like to give a shout out to it) kind of glossed over what the settings in the project properties should be for:
What are the project settings in SSRS deployment and what do they mean and refer to?
The deployment process requires setting up the TargetServerURL and the TargetServer Version. These are the only two items that I know are correct. The tutorial I have been watching does not go into the other items and does not clarify what they are and what they are used for.
The default settings for OverwriteDatasets and OverwriteDataSources was False and this is probably why my deployment attempt threw a nondescript error. So, now, perhaps if I try again, my deployment will create these folders on the server by force, but I would rather not do this because the database manager has already given me the names of the folders where I should deploy. So, how are these Folders arranged?
