Two years ago, I got stumped by a problem and solved it with a sloppy workaround. It worked and the website/app was delivered on schedule, but it was a dirty hack and always stayed in the back of my mind.

Getting ready for version 2.0, this was an item that I intended to solve. Almost two weeks of little victories and countless hours of research and trial and error have finally led to success! Smile | :) Even though I've been doing this for almost 20 years, it still invoked a karate kick and a short string of muttered obscenities. Laugh | :laugh: 'take that you b*****d!'

For anyone curious, the issue was getting the .net sql reportviewer to work under an Azure website environment. (not vm) Previously after reading somewhere that it wasn't 'officially supported' I resolved to exposing our in-house SSRS to host the reports which connected to the app's Azure database. As mentioned, this worked but it was really slow and difficult to maintain. (there are probably security risks as well)

I realize that this is probably beginner grade stuff for most of you, but it was a nice learning experience for me.

Anyhow, it feels great to finally replace a bad hack with a better one! Smile | :) Now begins the actual grunge work of migrating a few dozen reports from .rdl format to .rdlc. Dead | X|
