The Project Cannot Be Debugged.

Applies to: SQL Server Data Tools (SSRS) in SQL Server 2012.

Problem Description.

One of my students tried to debug a report from SQL Server Report Designer in SQL Server Data Tools, but received the following error message:

Microsoft SQL Server Report Designer
The project cannot be debugged because no starting report is specified.
In the Project Menu, select Properties and enter a value for StartItem.


A report must be selected to display it in the preview window when the project is run/debug.


On the solution explorer make a right click on the project name, and then click on Properties. Now on the StartItem combo box, select the report you would like to debug and click OK.
