Going back from Drill Through reports in Report Viewer SQL Services Reporting Services 2005

I have created a dashboard in SQL Server Reporing Services 2005 that has numerous links to Drill Through reports.  When I run the dashboard as a deployed solution from a web browser, I have no way to return to the parent report (the dashboard) from the drill through reports.  The browser back button doesn't work, the HTML Viewer control has no Back button and there doesn't seem to be any way to return to the main dashboard.  This is distinctly different than the Visual Studio 2005 development environment which has a back button and other functionality in development and testing.

I can't imagine that there isn't a way to return to the parent report.  What am I missing here?  The HTML Viewer control doesn't seem to have any configuration arameters to enable a Back button.  Is there a Parent Child relationship parameter in drill through report that tells it where to go back?

Please let me know any options.

Thanks,
Mike

Not missing but not working.  I am using IE 7 (release version).  Is there something in that that might make a difference?

Mike I havent used IE7 yet, cause some tech site reported some bugs which will cause our apps ( the way they are written) to perform poorly. So now you have a starting point, either check thin in IE6 or check your IE7 preferences/user settings and see if this is something you have to set globally or per IE connection
