Report Viewer and Archiving Improvements
When a user is viewing a report in the ReportViewer control, they should be able to archive an exact copy of THAT report. Currently if the user wishes to create an archive of the report and I make a call to CreateReportHistorySnapshot, this is a new execution of the report, which is not desired because the data might have changed.
Also, it would be nice if developers had the ability to save a snapshot of a report and store it themselves, such as in a file of some native format. Then they could load this into the ReportViewer at any time.
One last thing is that the ReportViewer needs to be able to show exported reports from different file formats such as Excel, PDF, etc.
