In this post we will see how to enable RDLC Reporting in Visual Studio 2017.

Go to Visual Studio Marketplace

  1. Microsoft Rdlc Report Designer for Visual Studio
    • Rdlc Designer and projects for ASP.Net and Windows Forms for Reporting Services Report Viewer Control
  2. Microsoft Reporting Services Projects
    • The Microsoft RDL report designer, projects and wizards for creating professional reports.

Download both package and install.

We also can install using Visual Studio >  Tools > Extensions and Updates

Go to Online Section > Visual Studio Marketplace > Search > “RDLC Reporting”

After installation re-open the project and Go to  Add New Item > Visual C# Items section

See both Report and Reporting Wizard is there.

Now we need to add Report Viewer Control(both Windows and Web) from NUGET

Go to Toolbox > General > Choose Items > .Net Components > Browse

Path: \WindowsFormsApp1\packages\Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportViewerControl.Winforms.140.340.80\lib\net40

Choose Item

Finally ReportViewer control appear in Toolbox, drag and drop it to the form.

Hope this’ll help 🙂
