Hi Nandhini

First thanks for read my article and also for comments.

If you have report manager, try to deploy that report and try it.

How many datasets have you used? Find the appropriate dataset, delete that reportname.rdl.data in the corresponding folder. And come back to report, preview the same.

Try this and let me know the status

Hi Prabhu,

Thanks for your prompt reply, Once i build my report it will display all records(12,000), at the same time while preview our report i will give error. But anyhow i can able to see the all records.

And we are developed our project in VS2010.to create a report we used .rdlc(Report)form. Is it both(rdlc and rdl) are same.because i'm not clear about SSRS

Oh... That's fine.

I haven't that much of experience in VS 2010.

.rdl vs .rdlc

.rdl Report Definition Language Server-side
that means which reports created using SQL Server BIDS tool

.rdlc Report Definition Language Client-side
which reports created using Visual Studio tools
