Export report to Powerpoint without installation of Aspose.Slides.ReportingService on server

The rendering process comprises two parts: 

  1. Render report to RPL using Reporting Service Web Service. See more information on Reporting Service Web Service here.
  2. Render RPL to Powerpoint using Aspose.Slides for Reporting service for ReportViewer. The assembly is located in {Aspose.Slides for Reporting Services home directory}\bin\RV2010  

How to Implement Export to PowerPoint:

  1. Create the web service proxy (see the details here) and add it to your solution.

  2. Add a reference to Aspose.Slides.ReportingServices.dll for ReportViewer 2010.

  3. Use this class to integrate web service proxy and Apose.Slides for Reporting Service

 class PowerpointRenderer

public void Render(string outputFileName, string reportPath, Aspose.Slides.ReportingServices.OutputPresentationFormat format)


using (FileStream pptSteam = new FileStream(outputFileName, FileMode.Create))


Aspose.Slides.ReportingServices.RplRenderer renderer = new Aspose.Slides.ReportingServices.RplRenderer();

//start rendering process

//here we are choosing to export in PPT format and providing outputStream

renderer.StartRendering(format, false);

int page = 1;

//this cycle iterates through all pages of report

while (true)


using (MemoryStream rplStream = CreateRplStream(page, reportPath))


//if rplStream is empty then we reached end of report

if (rplStream.Length == 0)


//add report page as slide to the document





//call finish method to flush our newly created presentation to output stream




private MemoryStream CreateRplStream(int page, string reportPath)


ReportExecutionService _executionService = new ReportExecutionService();

_executionService.Url = ReportingServiceUrl + "/ReportExecution2005.asmx";

_executionService.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(Username, Password, string.Empty);

string extension;

Warning[] warnings;

string[] streamIds;

string mimeType;

string encoding;

var executionInfo = _executionService.LoadReport(reportPath, null);

string deviceInfo = String.Format(





</DeviceInfo>", page);

byte[] result = _executionService.Render("RPL", deviceInfo, out extension, out mimeType, out encoding, out warnings, out streamIds);

return new MemoryStream(result);


  1. Now you can export the report through this code:

 PowerpointRenderer powerpointRenderer = new PowerpointRenderer();

powerpointRenderer.ReportingServiceUrl = "http://<Server Name>/Reportserver";

powerpointRenderer.Username = "Username";

powerpointRenderer.Password = "password";

powerpointRenderer.Render("test.ppt, "/AdventureWorks Sample Reports/Sales Order Detail SQL2008R2", Aspose.Slides.ReportingServices.OutputPresentationFormat.Ppt);
