I'm a reporting services developer, and I've been resisting moving
from SSRS 2005 to SSRS 2008 for two reasons. The first is that I
write some pretty complex MDX reports and in SSRS 2008 there is no
syntax highlighting. Furthmore, when I'm adding SSRS 2005 MDX
reports, it throws everything into a big pile, and ruins my spacing,
tabs, etc. I can't even do a Ctrl + A to select it All. Its just
really disappointing that they took steps backward in their code
editor from SSRS 2005 to SSRS 2008.
Also, I'm not a really big fan of getting rid of the design tab. It's
a hastle to me having to right click on each data set, then close the
window. My reports arn't simple enough that you can just drag and
drop things from the cube.
Does anyone know if the R2 release coming in May has dealt with either
I've voted at the Microsoft site for this bug and if you agree with me
that this is a big setback please feel free to help vote:
