Saving a group of report items as a Customized Composite Group is a powerful feature to re-use larger reporting items with other templates.
When closing the host application, the customized composite groups are stored in *.ircg or *.rdl files. The storage location depends on the host application and is listed below.
By copying the *.ircg or *.rdl files to other user's or project folders these composite groups can be shared with others. (Note: Moving composite groups across applications and revisions has not been tested.)
Storage locations for composite group files:
