Today I started a Reporting Services course at Solid Quality Learning, being taught by Rob Farley. My prior experience has been with numerous reporting solutions with Delphi/VB/.NET, and SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services are quite a nice change of pace.

One of my personal goals of the course was to figure out how to modify the Report Manager to always output the report in CSV format only. Unfortunately, it appears that this is not possible, and so the solution we’ve gone with is to create a simple ASP.NET application that lets you input the parameters, and then creates a ReportViewer dynamically, generates the report in CSV format, and streams the output back to the browser.
