After a report is viewed, I need to prompt the user if they want to mark these records as printed.  If they answer yes, I need to run an update query.  Is there a way to do this in Reporting Serivces?

Should be able to.  Use the genric query designer in your dataset and use something like

select * from yourtable
exec yourprocedure
where @updateparameter = 1

Create a parameter in the report that specifies the update.

Sorry, I got busy on other projects and could not get back to this one.

I want to make sure I am understanding this method.

They will need to run the report once with the parameter set to false.  Once the report prints succesfully (data looks valid, no need to edit data and regenerate, no paperjams, etc) they need to run the report again with the parameter set to true?

Is there any way of having a message box pop up after the first run instead of having them run a second time (of course the problem with message box is that it would be modal and not let them select a menu option to print...hmmmmm..)?

The Report Manager does not by default support pop-up messages.  Only way I can see to do this would be to incorporate your reports into your own ASP web page, with which you could add this additional functionality.
