Using dbForge Fusion for SQL Server, you can save a data report definition (its bands, controls and other settings) to an .rdb file, and later re-create a report instance from this file. This topic will describe how to save and load reports in dbForge Fusion for SQL Server.
To save a report, click Save[Document Name].rdb on the File menu or press Ctrl+S.
Also, you can select the Save[Document Name].rdb As… option or right-click the needed document tab in the document area and select Save [Document Name].rdb.
These actions will invoke the Save File As dialog window.
To load an existing report definition from an .rdb file, click Open File on the File main menu or press Ctrl+O. Each of these actions will invoke the Open File dialog window. You may select Reports (*.rdb) in the Files of type field to show only files with report definitions.
If dbForge Fusion for SQL Server cannot find a connection by the connection string that is available when loading a report, then a message with the following options will be shown:
Choose Existing - choose one of the existing connections.
If you choose this option, the Connection Manager window will be shown. In the Connections: field, available connections are displayed, and the Connection string area below shows the connection string for the selected connection.
