Many organizations have already moved to Office 365, some will be in the middle process of getting it upgraded and some might be yet to start. This post will help you with two different reports to get the raw data having relevant information about ‘Microsoft Office’ in your environment.

Hi thanks ,i got an error when trying to upload the .rdl file

Me too – getting this on all the Office 365 reports.
@Anoop – your Office report RDL’s do not work.
I can still use the link and it redirects me to correct rdl files.
Are you not able to download the rdl files or does these rdl files are not working when importing as a report?
I downloaded the RDLs from Github, unblocked them, then tried to open them using SQL Report Builder 2014. Could it be Report Builder version?
Forgot to mention. I get this error in Report Builder.
DTD is prohibited in this XML document.
When you are downloading the rdl files and importing it are you changing the database to yours before running?
Were you able to run this report?
Anyone ever figure out how to get around the DTD error?
