Get that old SSRS template into Windward shape with the new report conversion tool.

"This gives them the power to reuse those templates and generate valuable reports without spending weeks getting their system up to date." said David Thielen, founder and CTO of Windward.

Windward, the experts in reporting, document generation and business intelligence, announced today it has released the new SSRS report definition file conversion tool. The SSRS converter enables anyone to automatically convert an existing SSRS report definition file to a Windward template.

Businesses can now use the automated tool to create Windward-ready templates instead of manually recreating them. It can also be implemented by businesses using another system prior to switching to Windward by converting those templates to SSRS via a third-party tool and then using the SSRS conversion tool to convert them to Windward.

"Customers with a large library of SSRS templates formerly had few options for accessing those templates," said David Thielen, founder and CTO of Windward. "This gives them the power to reuse those templates and generate valuable reports without spending weeks getting their system up to date."

The SSRS converter handles Select Statements and Objects such as text, tables, charts, and more automatically. Object positioning occasionally needs tweaking because SSRS objects have a fixed position on the page but the Windward convertor instead makes them part of the Word document flow.

The code for the open source tool has been posted on CodePlex. For more information on how to use the tool, please visit the Windward documentation wiki.
