Generate RDLC report from uipath

Hi All,

I have created a C# program that generates an rdlc report. I have converted it to an activity. However, I am getting the following error message:

RemoteException wrapping Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.LocalProcessingException: An error occurred during local report processing. —> RemoteException wrapping Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportProcessing.ReportProcessingException: Failed to load expression host assembly.

I have no experience in converting C# programs into dll much less uipath activities. Please assist. Perhaps I am missing something.

Thanks in Advance

Hi there @Raynerlim

Can you explore the following documentation and get back if you still have queries :slight_smile:

Regards

That was the exact process I followed to get to this error message. Thanks & Regards

Well if it not confidential I can take a look at what you are trying to achieve and find which namespace is missing or if any imports are being left out.

Hope you tried building custom activity using the nuget explorer that most people use (link - https://github.com/NuGetPackageExplorer/NuGetPackageExplorer/releases)

Hi,

Yea was using that.

Please you this link to get the projects
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/11sXgGk9WH83OhfgvJg03S0HPvU7nXzpt?usp=sharing

ABCFactSheet is the project to be converted while RDLCTest is the initial project done through button click with a ui

Thanks & Regards

There is also an SQL script for the MS SQL database
