    That's to less information.

    Guess: You build the report with a different SSRS version then the SSRS version you use = newer report defintion, which your SSRS don't know and don't support.

    Hi @KING, Heather

    At run time, the report processor checks whether the report definition (.rdl file) conforms to the schema specified in the namespace declaration at the beginning of the .rdl file. If a problem is detected, "The definition of the report <report name> is invalid" will be reported.
