You may receive the following error in the Report Queue when you generate a report to SharePoint:

Unable to create the related report link in: '<report library path>'


This error can be caused by using invalid characters in the report Output name (ex: period at the end) in the Report Definition in Report Designer. SharePoint has specific file name requirements that need to be adhered to. You can view these requirements here.


Remove the invalid characters from the report's Output name per the SharePoint requirements.
