Merge SSRS Report Output With SQL-RD's Package Schedule

Imagine that the management team needs to receive 10 weekly status reports that include finances, inventory, sales etc. As usual, you have 10 subscriptions setup that deliver these reports. Everything is working just fine, then suddenly management decides that they no longer want to fuss with 10 different reports and 10 different emails. Instead, they want one document that encompasses all the weekly information they need. Great, now you have to write a whole new report, deploy it, and then set up the subscriptions all over again. Or do you? Using SQL-RD's Package Schedule, you can merge SSRS report output into a single PDF, text, or Excel file without the need to change the reports.
