RDL vs. RDLC versions and Dynamics NAV v.2

A few years ago I wrote a blog post outlining when each version of RDL(Server side Reporting, not supported out of the box in NAV) and RDLC(Client Side Reporting, supported in NAV) was released and which are supported in which version of Dynamics NAV. During my many Report training classes I always start explaining this chart in details.

I have trained over 500 NAV developers now and as always if you have been at my training, you are more than welcome to contact me if you think there was something I missed talking about during the class you attended and then I will of course guide you in the right direction for free. This way my training class just gets better and better since I don’t like to give to much free support 🙂 The next couple of months will be pack with training classes mainly in Denmark, Belgium and USA. If you are interested just leave your contact details here: http://localhost/wordpress/about/

But back to point…

Since the NAV team has been real busy is is time for an updated chart which explains when each version of RDL and RDLC was released. It also clear in this chart that the SSRS team in the SQL team, responsible for RDL is planning something big in the next version since nothing has happen since SQL Server 2008 R2, or they have stopped improvements to RDL. We all love updates and improvements, when the upgrade is easy, so let us bet on them making RDL better in next version of SQL Server. Not sure we will win that bet though, but let’s hope.
The Chart should be self explanatory, but if you join my training I will of course explain it in details:
