Hello, All.

Alright, I have a project solution (sln file) for BIDs on a server.

When I typically work on SSRS reports, I just go double click that project (sln file).

Today I was toying with the idea of starting a new project, so I launched BIDs from my start menu.
I added one of the server rdl files to it and it came up as html.

I scrapped the idea of a new project, but now that file opens as HTML when I open the project from the server too. All the other rdl's on the server open fine. It's just the one I opened with the version of BIDs on my start menu.

Just wondering if that file is screwed or if it is recoverable. I really don't wanna go to the data center and pull a copy off tape.

Server file opens in Visual Studio 2008 3.5 sp1 version 9.0.30729.1 SP.
Start menu MS Sql Server 2008/BIDs is Visual Studio 2008 3.5 sp1 version 9.0.30729.1 SP also.

Can't imagine what would be different about them.

Thanks everyone.
