I wonder if I can download an RDL file that was uploaded to a Sharepoint list. I want to upload it to our QA server, but I don't seem to find it anywhere since it was done by the developer before me.

If SSRS was configured in SharePoint Integrated Mode, then the RDL files should be saved in a document library somewhere. Should be easy enough to just download them upload to your QA box, and they should work fine I reckon. The tough bit for you sounds like locating them.

Yes, I may've not explained myself. The RDL file is in a Document library. The thing is there's no download link. If I click on the file the report opens up, and if I right click and select save target as, an HTML page is saved. – omar Nov 10 '10 at 22:16
What happens if you use the EditControlBlock menu to select Send To -> Download a Copy ? – James Love Nov 10 '10 at 22:20

Open the report folder in Windows Explorer view....:-)

Can you edit the view and add the Edit control to the visibile columns?
