This problem occurs if you use Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (SSRS) in Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

Symptom 2Consider the following scenario in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0. You download a customized report that contains Microsoft Dynamics CRM Pre-Filtering code. Then, you try to upload the report directly to Reporting Services or you try to modify the report in Microsoft Visual Studio Report Designer. In this scenario, you receive the following error message:
The element 'Report' in namespace 'http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2005/01/reportdefinition' has invalid child element 'Custom' in namespace 'http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2005/01/reportdefinition'. List of possible elements expected: 'http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2005/01/reportdefinition:Description http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2005/01/reportdefinition:Author http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2005/01/reportdefinition:AutoRefresh http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2005/01/reportdefinition:DataSources http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2005/01/reportdefinition:DataSets http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2005/01/reportdefinition:Body http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2005/01/reportdefinition:ReportParameters http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2005/01/reportdefinition:Code http://schemas.microsoft.com/sqlserver/reporting/2005/... Line 56, position 2034.
This problem occurs because the downloaded report was formatted incorrectly. The report contains the appended Microsoft Dynamics CRM Pre-Filtering code for the SQL Server 2003 Reporting Services schema or for the SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services schema. The SQL Server 2003 Reporting Services schema and the SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services schema use the <Custom> tag for pre-filtering. The SQL 2005 Reporting Services schema contains new schema definitions. The new schema definitions do not use the <Custom> tag when you re-upload the report. Therefore, Microsoft Dynamics CRM cannot validate the XML code in the report.
This problem was corrected in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 3.0 Update Rollup 3.
