Toolbox Item missing for SSRS Reporting project

When you open SSRS reporting project in Business Intelligence studio, you can view different tool available in your toolbox (make sure your report file is open in IDE). Sometime you will get only Textbox control multiple times instead of different controls.

Come out from this problem, you have to remove some temporary files which load Toolbox. You can get these file on following location:

%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0

You have to remove following files from the above path:

  • toolbox.tbd
  • toolbox_reset.tbd
  • toolboxIndex.tbd
  • toolboxIndex_reset.tbd

After removing files, you have to reset the toolbox. It will take time to reset the Toolbox. After reseting, you will get all the controls available in SSRS project.
