Microsoft Planning for Visual Studio 2019

Microsoft’s recent acquisition of GitHub has the developer tools teams at the company looking at what might be next for its customers. Part of the future of value, the company believes that making the developer more productive is key, but also believes more and better refactorings, better navigation, more capabilities in the debugger, faster solution load, and faster builds are important. In a blog post today that seems more like someone just thinking out loud than providing coherent information, and without going into hard dates for making builds available, or even about when the company plans a full public release, Microsoft believes the next step is Visual Studio 2019.

What Does the Error Message, “Unknown Report Version 9.0,” in Visual Studio 2015 Mean?

By Garth Jones A long time ago I started working on two projects using SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio 2005 (BIDS). I wanted to keep working on these projects, so I upgraded from BIDS 2005 to SQL Server Data Tools Visual Studio 2015 (SSDT). After editing and then trying to save one of the SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) reports in SSDT, I received this notification, “Unknown Report Version 9.0.” This blog post will tell you about the steps I took to troubleshoot this problem. Upgrading from Previous BIDS/SSDT Solutions to Latest Version of SSDT Notice that when you upgrade your solutions and projects, you are given a warning message that this is a one-way upgrade. As you may or may not know, when you import a solution and project from an older version of either BID...

SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) and RDL Versions

By Garth Jones You built your report using SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) which saves the RDL in the SQL Server 2016 format. That’s great, but now you need the native RDL in the SQL Server 2008 R2 format. In this blog post I will show you where to find the SQL Server 2008 R2 RDL in SSDT. While I was attending the Midwest Management Summit at the Mall of America (MMSMOA) in May, I gave a presentation on SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) 2016. I talked about how I love using the new SSDT because you can use it with different versions of SQL Server (2008 to 2016) when creating dashboards and reports. After finishing a report or dashboard with SSDT, you can then upload/publish it to your SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) reporting site/website. SSDT will do this by uploading the appropriate versio...
