SSRS Field Name Changes

Basically SSRS is in xml format. We can safely modify with text editor if you know what exactly changes you want to change rather than open with Visual Studio. Of course, I’m not recommend here you can always use text editor to make changes to the report and layout, definitely Visual Studio only has all the complete feature.

The thing I try to point out here is if there is a minor field name changes or dimension name changes you can safely to find and replace with normal text editor. I’ve confirmed that by diff two versions which modified using Visual Studio. Basically the only changes is field name change, not other else.

Original

<ID xsi:type="Level">
                      <DimensionName>DefaultDimension</DimensionName>
                      <HierarchyName>SiteName</HierarchyName>
                      <HierarchyUniqueName>[DefaultDimension].[SiteName]</HierarchyUniqueName>
                      <LevelName>SiteName</LevelName>
                      <UniqueName>[DefaultDimension].[SiteName].[SiteName]</UniqueName>
                    </ID>

Change to

<ID xsi:type="Level">
                      <DimensionName>Project</DimensionName>
                      <HierarchyName>SiteName</HierarchyName>
                      <HierarchyUniqueName>[Project].[SiteName]</HierarchyUniqueName>
                      <LevelName>SiteName</LevelName>
                      <UniqueName>[Project].[SiteName].[SiteName]</UniqueName>
                    </ID>
