Report debugging – error messages

When testing report it is useful to switch on the remote debugging so the error messages are displayed on your local system.

This can be done by running a SQL script against the reporting server database:

UPDATE    ConfigurationInfo
SET        Value = ‘TRUE’
WHERE    Name = ‘EnableRemoteErrors’

Remember to restart your reporting service after you make this change.
