Error: Microsoft Report Viewer item (RDLC) not available to add in Visual Studio 2017

Hi all,

I got this problem when i’m working with Visual Studio 2017. i had requirement to add Microsoft Report Viewer (RDLC) file to my project, but when i go to add new item , there is no any reporting component to add to project.

I do three ways to resolve this issue.,

First :

Run the Visual Studio 2017 Setup file and check SQL Server Data Tools installed or Not.if not please install it.

Second:

Install  Microsoft Repo,rt Projects for Visual Studio using below link

after install the Microsoft Report Projects for Visual Studio you can use reporting as separate project.

you can add report project into solution under Business Intelligence category.
